Penguins & Polar Bears

This is another card that I made using the sketch at Simon Says Stamp. The image I used is called Trimming The Tree and is from Whimsy Stamps. The challenge at Winter Wonderland is to use either penguins or polar bears. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added silver, lavender and crystal stickles to the decorations on the tree and crystal stickles on all the white cardstock. I added 2 clear star buttons for the challenge at Prairie Fairy.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
