Pick Up A Penguin

I can't believe how cold it is today, l am sat here in my fleecy jumper chilled to the bone and have added my cosy dressing gown on top - l bet it is warmer in this igloo lol.
As the postage costs have rocketed l need to make more christmas cards standard postage and this one will be perfect.
Firstly l stamped the image onto the white card then masked the image, l them stamped the snowflake stamp in versamark then added cosmic shimmer embossing powder. It looks better IRL than on the photo.
