Molly Blooms Penguin

Thank goodness the working week is over and the weekend is here.  A couple of days to unwind a little.
Picked this stamp up a couple of days ago.  It is a gorgeous one from Molly Blooms.  I just love penguins and he was so cute.  Here's what I created with him.
I used the layout from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.  I coloured the image using my trusty promarkers.  Decided to go for a monochromatic theme using varying shades of green.  Coredinations cardstock and some papers from my stash were used for the matting and layering.  The mock snowflakes at the bottom are wooden shapes that I have glittered. Added little strips of glitter paper to the underneath of the centre one.  A glitter flourish and bow completed the card.

Think the colours work for a christmas card but would be interested in what you think.  Please feel free to leave me comments.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - use sketch provided
I love Promarkers - Ain't it cute
Creative Inspirations - Monochromatic

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.
