More winter fun

By this time of the year, I'm ready for spring.  (I noticed some daffodils are pushing up in my garden. But snow flurries are in the forecast for tomorrow, so it's not spring yet.)  However, I signed up for some winter-themed swaps, and this is a card for one of those.

I started by flicking white paint on dark blue paper to created a snow storm.  I used a toothbrush, and the paint splatters ended up being really fine, except for the occasional dribble. I'm calling that "adding interest to the background."

The little penguin is from Impression-Obsession.  He's colored with pencils, and I used some Stickles for the ice he's saking on.  I embellished the sentiment panel with some snowflake gel stickers from EK Success. (found them for 70 percent off while trolling the clearance racks at Target. Score!)

The sketch is Sketch Saturday #292.

I would like to enter the card in these challenges:
