Penguin Love

Happy April, and welcome to a new month long challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, it is Anything Goes as long as it is Christmas related.  Here is my card for your inspiration:
Ooo . . . don't you love that two-tone bow???  I used my Bow Easy tool to create it.  I've never tried this before, but I will definitely be doing it again.  Love the look!  The "snow hills" were in my bits and pieces stash, I just inked up the edges with some silver ink so they would stand out better.  I cut the penguin out and popped it up with foam tape.  Then I added the little red hearts to his hands; so cute!

Challenges:
Fantastic Tuesday #130--hearts & flowers
Retro Rubber #35--anything goes (my sentiment is probably 6 years old or more and the penguin digi is at least 3--if a digi doesn't count, I'm so sorry, please remove my entry)
Tuesday Throwdown #287--add lace
Tuesday Morning #345--sketch

Craftin' Desert Divas--black & white plus a splash of color
Pixie's Playground #222--anything goes with snippets (the snow hills, tag, black and white banners are all snippets)
Hiding In My Craft Room #244--any holiday
Little Miss Muffet #134--anything goes
One Stitch At A Time #258--embossing
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday--anything goes
Inspiration Destination Challenge #79--anything goes
Crafty Gals Corner #65--anything goes
Penny's Paper #271--anything goes
Fab n Funky #298--Christmas


Supplies:
Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Little Penguin Winter" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" tag and "Blueprints 12" little banner; Verve "Flag It"
Cuttlebug embossing folder

Such a cutie Heather - super card! How funny, I just got a package yesterday with a couple of Bow Easy gadgets in - one as part of a future Playground prize. Love how you made the double bow, main reason I bought it so it's great to see yours!
