Aud Sentiments #71 Any Winter Sentiment

This is my first card of 2013 but sadly my last for Aud Sentiments as I have stepped down from the Design Team to concentrate on my nephew's wedding stationery.
The theme of our new challenge is "Use any Winter Sentiment".   We're being sponsored by Bugaboo who gave the Design Team images to work with.

Image is from Bugaboo and is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a gelly roll pen and some glamour dust. Papers which are well over a year old are from Wild Rose Studio. Snowflake is a punch and punch waste. Card is finished with some lace, ribbon and silver chain from my stash.

My resolution for this year is to make my Christmas cards specifically for recipients and try to get the family ones done early. This card is for my nephew and his partner as they both love penguins......now I just have to make a Christmas card list so I can cross them off as they're made!!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see my team mates take on this challenge, you won't be disappointed.

Cards Galore - anything goes
Digi Galore - something new (image)
Bearly Mine - something old, something new ( papers and image)
Digital Tuesday - layers
Ladybug Crafts Ink - anything goes for Christmas
Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - use a sponsor product (oldie = papers)
