I May Have Lost My Mind, Day 3

The 3rd day of Christmas challenge at Bugaboo Stamps is to use an animal. I know penguins aren't technically an animal, but the design team used them on their example cards and this was another past freebie so I'm pretty sure these guys will work. Most of the work for this one came in arranging the image itself. I imported it into my Silhouette program then replicated it twice more (and then there were 3). I used the eraser tool to erase some of the snow between the 2 penguins before putting them next to each other. The 3rd one I flipped horizontally, made a little smaller, and set on top. I printed everything onto my background paper. I printed another copy on white cardstock and colored the hats, feet and noses. Then I cut out the pieces, this time by hand, and glued them onto the background paper. Added some DecoArt Snow Writer for the snow at their feet and we have 3 cutey penguins for the 3rd day of Christmas.
My lessons learned: that my markers, even the red, will not color over polka dotty paper. That's the reason for the paper piecing.
I would like to share my card at:
