Oh to my card I have taken inspiration from the 2nd Photo this time!
I have used this Cute Pickle the penguin stamp a wild rose studio stamp
DCWV papers that I bought about 5 years ago (lol)
the snowflake border is a Tim Holtz On the edge cutter
I have also coloured the image with mostly Black soot Distress ink, and added a tiny splash of tattered rose for his cheeks.I have glamoured it and also added some glossy accents, twine and highlighted with black and white Gel pens.

The Challenge I'm joining is with are:
Anything Goes Challenge - things with Wings
