 Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge 64

Yes, yes, yes it is only suppose to be autumn but it sure feels like 
winter here in NM
So that is how this project came to be
Not sure yet if it will be on a card or a wall hanging.
Yet again I used Jim Holz Grungeboard 
Painted with Pale blue Craft Smart Acrylic paint 
I used the Lacy Label cartridge to look like a ice skating rink
I created a snowy effect with Martha Steward's tinsel glitter
I colored the penguins with Prisma color pencil 
blended with Stamin' up blender pen 
and also used staples permanent markers 
Ribbons from an unknown source 
Rhinestones - Recollections with a dot of 
Liquid Pearls baby blue 
Well Guys I hope you like it
