Hi everyone!  This is the card I made for this week's designed2delight's progressive challenge.  Isn't this skater penguin just the cutest!?  I also made my card for the double delight challenge in which we were to use this image along with some type of snowflakes.

The snowflakes I used on my card are my embossed cuttlebug background and a few punched snowflakes I made from the negative part of my EK Success snowflake border punch.

To create the image part of my card, I first printed it out, heat set it using my heat gun, and then I colored it using my SU markers.  Next, I decided to color in some of the area below the penguin using my bashful blue marker and then I put some crystal effects over top of that.  While the crystal effects product was still wet I sprinkled some dazzling diamonds glitter over top of it and then I let it dry. 

Once my image dried (it took a few hours) I began assembling my card.  I used my nesties to cut out my image and card stock layers and then I decided to use my white gel pen for a little bit of an accent along my red and bashful blue layers.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you liked my card.  I wasn't quite sure about the color combination I used, but I think I made it work.  Have a great rest of the day!
