Lemon and Lime

It's those pesky penguins again - heeding Chrissie's invaluable advice I've cleaned up the background and I have to agree she was right.
Stamp from Penny Black coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a gelly roll pen. Embossed background is a cuttlebug snowflake folder, mounted onto lemon and lime card from my bit box. Finished with a peel off sentiment.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - sketch
Allsorts - lemon and lime
Saturday Challenge - embossing
Creative Craft World - Christmas in June
CHNC - anything goes
