Chilly Penguin

There is still plenty of snow on the ground and probably will be for a while.  So, in that spirit I made a cute wintery card today. 
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white cardstock for the card base.  I cut some dark grey cardstock at 5 1/4"x4" and embossed it with the Large Snowflakes embossing folder.  I then sanded it to expose the white core at the edges of the embossing.  I cut a strip of white cardstock at 5 1/4"x1 1/2" and a strip of light grey cardstock at 5 1/4"x1 1/4."  I used Christmas Cheer to cut the snowflakes.  They are cut at 3 1/2."  The penguin is also from Christmas Cheer, he is cut at 3 1/4."  I added some Liquid Pearls to the white parts of his hat and gave him black pearl eyes.  The penguin is on a piece of cardstock that is 3 1/2"x2 1/2."  It was embossed with the Snowflakes embossing folder.  I adhered it to the card with foam tape.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot, the "Winter Wonderland" set.  It is stamped in london fog Tsukineko ink.
 
For the inside I cut some dark grey cardstock at 5 1/4"x4," some light grey cardstock at 5"x3 3/4" and some white cardstock at 4 3/4"x3 1/2."  I used two more stamps from My Craft Spot, both from the "Think Snow" set.  I also used two snowflake stamps that are on this set.  They are all stamped with london fog ink by Tsukineko.
 
I made this for the following challenges:
