Ice Fishing Penguin

Hi all..... Hope everyone is having a safe and warm day.  We are in the middle of a blizzard here in Maine.  We are expected to get at least 2 feet of snow before this is done.  YUCK!! I am so ready for summer!! But a snow day is a perfect excuse to spend some time being crafty. So I spent the morning with my kiddos and then snuck off for a couple hours and made a couple cards. 
A view out my kitchen door earlier today.

Anyway enough about the storm and a little about my card....
In my church we have a lot of guys who love to fish.  So this freebie image from Deedee's Digis was the perfect image to create a card for one of them.  I started with a dark blue card base and added a piece of blue patterned paper backed in white card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in dark blue and white card stock.  The sentiment is also part of the freebie from Deedee's Digis.  I also backed that in dark blue and white card stock.  I punched four snowflakes from white card stock and added them to my card.  I added diamond stickles to the ice on the image and the snowflakes.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.....
