Seize the Birthday: Winter

Hello and happy Thursday!!
It's time for another challenge over Seize the Birthday
The challenge optional topping for the next 2 weeks is: 
I loved this theme a lot!!!  We have lots of December birthday's in our family.
I have two boys that are the 21st and 23rd, our niece is the 16th, our best friend is the 25th and a few more, I just can't seem to remember.  So for me, it was really fun combining the two celebrations!!

For my card today, I am using Penny Black: Mimi's Christmas.  Look at all those cute penguins, lined up to give that snowman hugs!!  Is't that the cutest scene!!!  I could not resist!!!
Colored with Copics and the background was created using Stormy Sky: Distress Ink
I painted stardust glitter glue to the floor beneath the penguins.
The sentiment was created using 2 different stamps from MFT: Pure Innocence
Holiday Hugs & Wishes (Holidays Hug Snowman)
Birthday (Don't Open Until)
Finished off the card by adding white gel pen to the snowflakes around them and bling, to the 4 corners.

So are you ready?
Head over to the Seize the Birthday blog and check out the rest of the teams creations!!
You will LOVE what you see.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!
