Warm Wishes on a Cold Day

Oh no!  We're gonna get more snow!!!
Looks like tomorrow may be a good day to work on addressing all these Christmas cards I've been making.  The forecast is not the best.  

I used mostly Close to My Heart products to make the card above.  I started with plain cardstocks, stamped the snowflakes and added some extra blue with a stipple brush to make my own BG.   
I cut the front of the card shorter than the back and used a punch on the bottom of both.  A strip of  CTMH silver glitter ribbon was added to the front and also the bottom of the inside of the card so it shows through the blue punched edge on the front.  
Isn't the penguin adorable? 
He's part of a special stamp set available to CTMH party hostesses only.

This little fella is headed for the following cold weather challenges:
Crafty Hands Challenge #4 - Seasons Greetings/Winter Theme
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - It's Cold Outside
Moving Along with the Times Challenge - Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Sarah Hurley Challenge #87 - Create Your Own Background
Creative Moments Challenge #32 - Anything Goes/Winter Wonderland
