A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Winter Wonderland

We have a festive challenge for you this week at A Gem of a Challenge, this time our theme is "Winter Wonderland".  I've used three of Janet's cute new penguin digis, made them all different sizes, and merged them together to make one image, which I then coloured with Promarkers, adding Ultra Fine Flower Soft to the hat trim and Liquid Pearls for snow.
 This card is for a friend's children to give their grandparents, the tree penguins represent the three boys, with baby Ebyn in the middle.  This is another 8x8 card, I seem to be making a lot of these at the moment, I wanted a nice large image to take centre stage on this one, so I've gone for a white on white backdrop, apart from some red bunting, made with a Joy die, with Oma and Papa stamped on the flags.
I embossed some Centura Pearl card with an Embossalicious plaid folder for a bit of texture, then layered some white ribbon, and some snowflakes cut with Die'sire dies from glitter paper, under the topper, before sticking it down.  I then finished with a white organza bow, small snowflakes made with a Nellie Snellen punch, and baker's twine bows.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Jellypark - Christmas 
QKR Stampede - #66 - It's Starting to Look a Lot Like Christmas
