Digi Haven Challenge "Winter/Snow"

Time for another challenge here at Digi Haven. This week's cool challenge is "Winter/Snow." We are kindly sponsored by Dilly Beans Stamps. The winner will receive 3 images from Dilly Beans. (That is just so generous...wish I could play along, so I could Challenge will run until Jan 31st.

I actually made two (2) cards. Here is the first:

and the second card:

Finished Cards: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: (1st) White, Pine Green, Light Blue and Patterned
(2nd) White, Bright Pink and Patterned
Dilly Bean Stamps Digital Image #494 Penguin Framed
Spectrum Noir Markers
Fiskars Border Punch Snowflake Swirl (2nd card)
Mounting Tape (2nd card)

I just love penguins and I was tickled pink when I was able to use one of Dilly Beans Stamps penguin images. Isn't he just adorable? I thought so...which is why I got carried away making a second card....well, that AND Santa brought me ALL the Spectrum Noir Markers Sets. (Now I have the entire collection! Thank you Santa!) I had been sick (flu AND strep, what a combination, huh?), so I really couldn't wait to play once I was feeling better. 

On the first card, I thought the background looked like snow falling. I also decided to have the card open is a different way and no embellishments. I really like the way this turned out...what do you think?

The second card I like because of the bolder colors...something different. The image is single mounted and again no extra embellishments aside form the border punch. Do you like this one?

I hope you decide to join the challenge and don't forget to check out the other designers at Digi Haven. They have some beautiful projects. 

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Which card is your favorite?

I would like to enter this into Cupcake Inspirations challenge.
