Penguins Playing in Snow!

This card is for this weeks MFT sketch challenge over at the MFT member forums of SCS. I decided to play with my Winter Blast set and also some of the fantastic digital papers available on My Favorite Thing's website.

The top circle and square layers were created using my circle and square nestabilities ... these make layering so easy, and I love the look of the scallop layers. The penguins were stamped onto the white circle using black ink. The snowflakes I used here are actually part of a background stamp avail in "Icing on the Cake" I just inked up one of the little star/snow pieces of the background in sky blue ink to create my snowflakes in the sky.
