Penguin Skate ~ First DT Gig!

This is an exciting day for me as I am excited to show you my first card as a member of a design team. My awesome friend Jeanette recommended me to Deanne, the creator of the {PIN}Spirational Challenges, as they had a couple of openings. I am honored to be a part of this team.
The {PIN}Spirational Challenges are on Tuesdays. Each week the challenge is to look at the picture we post from Pinterest and make a creation inspired by that picture  Be sure to visit the {PIN}Spirational Challenges,  for all of the details and to see all of the fabulous creations from the design team. 
January 8-15

Here's the photo to inspire us:

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps

Bugaboo Stamps kindly provided digital images for this challenge. I chose Penguin Skate image……it is just the cutest image! THANK YOU, Bugaboo Stamps


I think this guy is enjoying all of the cold weather we have had the past few weeks as the ice is frozen solid!

Here is the inside of my card:
