Penguin Christmas Card

Penguin images just make me happy.  This Penguin Christmas Card is made with a digital stamp by Bugaboo.  I'm trying to trick my mind into cooler thoughts by making Christmas cards and by doing a little Christmas ornament shopping at Hallmark this morning.  It's been really hot here in Oklahoma. I'm hoping the mind over matter theory really works. The penguins in this image are delightfully cheerful and just what I needed to work on today. I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
I colored the image with Copic markers and added some sparkle to the ornaments with a Gelly Roll pen in clear star.  The patterned paper is by doodlebug design inc. (1166, Christmas loopy stripes) and I adhered the image with foam tape to give it a little more dimension.  Since I didn't use a sentiment on the front of the card I added a Christmas greeting and a little decoration the the inside of the card.  This Penguin Christmas Card is a simple design that would be easy to make multiples of for all your friends and family.
