*PINK* and Tropical Non-traditional Christmas

Hello fellow bloggers!  I hope your Monday was a good one...and the rest of your week will be as well!  I'm here to share with you this card:

Aren't these penguins just adorable?  They're from Snag 'Em Stamps, and they've been sitting in my stash for a good while now without seeing any ink.  I think they are happier now that they have gotten inky!  :)  The dp all comes from the MME Merry 6 x 6 pad, and the sparkly banner is cut from a DCWV glitter cardstock 6 x 6  pad.  I was in need of a sketch, so I went to the Papertake Weekly blog for some inspiration and found some in sketch #86. 

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly:  Super Fly (anything with wings)
Jingle Belles *PINK* Christmas
Winter Wonderland:  Tropical Christmas
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  Snowflakes (there are tiny snowflakes on the blue and pink circles on the dp)
Merry Monday #131: Non-traditional Christmas colors
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge:  Use something forgotten or never used
Penny Black and More:  Get Ahead for Christmas
HOLY COW!  TEN challenges! That is definitely the most I have EVER entered at one time.  How awesome is that?!
Thanks for stopping by, and take care!

ETA:  Here's a close up pic of the dotted dp with the tiny snowflakes on them!  :)
