It's cold enough for penguins

(The title of the post is all I'm going to say about the weather here....)
Crafty Ribbons Challenge asks us to make a card that was at least 90 black and white.  What's more black and white than penguins?  I just added the tiniest bit of orange to brighten it up.
The sketch is STAMPlorations #28, with a strip of dotted ribbon running down the edge of the plaid panel.  I added a button and some orange embroidery floss.

I'm entering these challenges.
