Little Penguin

We've had gorgeous weather today so we spent the morning in the garden. I managed to get a couple of hours cardmaking in this afternoon too. I thought I'd do another couple of Christmas cards and saw a challenge for a white card. I think white cards can be stunning so I set about seeing what I could come up with. I'd seen the idea of using nine squares on a couple of blogs and using two different embossing folders added a bit of interest.

I've used:
Image is from the Have An Ice Christmas set from Pink Petticoat.
Image coloured with Promarkers and chalked around the edges.
White card is embossed with Cuttlebug folders Kars Snowflakes and Snowflakes and squares cut with Nesties.
Glitter glue used on white squares and penguin's hat.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy #60 - All white except for image
I Love Promarkers #33 - White on White
Papertake Weekly Animal Magic
A Spoonful of Sugar #122 - Anything Goes
Digi Doodle Shop's Best #26 - Emboss It
One Stop Craft #99 - Snowflakes in September
Crafty Emma's #5 - Animal Antics
Colour Create #54 - All White with option of Embossing
