What is the Temperature of a Penguin?

For today's Splitcoast Technique Challenge 307 Mojo Motivator Challenge . . . my good friend, Holly, is the hostess today and she had us choose one technique challenge, one color challenge and one sketch challenge from the past challenges. I loved this challenge - it made it so easy! (How many times can I say challenge in one paragraph?)
I chose:
TLC160 - Cuttlebug, The Negative Effect (so easy and a cool effect)
CC110A - Cool Caribbean, Whisper White Basic Black
SC276

My images are from Penguins and More available at I Brake For Stamps.This card measures 6" square. I stamped the penguins and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (the best!) and added Diamond Stickles to the bottom of the image for a sparkly snow effect. I sponged Cool Caribbean ink into my Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder and then ran my white cardstock through it. It picked up nicely and subtley! I have a large stash of snowflake stickers and love using them!

We have a snow day today and about 10 inches of snow on my deck with more coming down. It's 10 degrees with a windchill of -8. Balmy compared to the forecasted -25. BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!

I love your sweet penguin card! And I'm a little jealous of your snow! It's raining here and 38 - my fingers (and toes!) are crossed we can drop down a few more degrees! And! love your 100 Days of Joy, what a fun way to get to know you a little better!
