S for snow scene

I'm joining in late, but here is my contribution to the new challenge over at the Alphabet challengeblog: S for snow scene. We'd like to see your snow-inspired creations this fortnight, and I decided to add some cute critters, too.
I thought about creating an actual outdoor scene, but I found this beautiful snowflake print in an old book and I just had to give it a try. I cut it to the size of a slimline card, and matched it with this trio of penguins which unmistakenly comes from the bugaboo collection. 
I coloured them with coloured pencils and placed them on brown cardboard cut outs which resemble windows. However, the card still seemed a bit empty.
I went through my stash again and applied pearls of different sizes onto the snowflakes. The penguin frames do stand out a little bit due to the adhesive tape, and in combination with the pearls the whole card has a bit of a 3D effect. Also, I added a couple of tiny pearls on the images itself to replace the snowflake-dots.

as you like it: favourite person to create for (I create cards for both family and friends, but I guess it's a bit easier to create for friends who don't expect anything over the top. Family doesn't either, to be honest, but I'll always try to make something extra nice which means more planning & effort to make sure everything is just as I imagined. For friends on the other hand, I can be more playful with designs, digis, sentiments...)
