Little Penguin Winter Reindeer

Another christmas card into the box:

This one is for the following challenges:
De Creatieve Zebra - sketch
Catch the Bug - January BINGO
Crafting for All Seasons - Buttons and Bows
CHNC - use recycled or free
CHNC - Anything Christmas
Glitter & Sparkle - sentiment
Papertake Weekly - add bow
ABC Christmas Challenge

The card uses the sketch from De Creatieve Zebra.  The background paper is a freebie from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.  I have used a wide ribbon for the cross on the sketch.  The image is from Bugaboo and is called Little Penguin Winter Reindeer.  I have kept the colouring to blues plus Y00 for beak and bells and C1 for the body.  The sentiment is from Desert Diva.  Matting is with blue cardstock from my stash.  The buttons are also from my stash and the little blue bow is made from ribbon tied around our christmas crackers.  Because it was only a short piece it took quite a few attempts to actually tie it into a bow.  I was determined to put it into a proper bow and not cheat with a knot type bow!  I kept all the ribbon from the christmas crackers and have managed to put the lime green one to use on another project - still have some more blue left for something else.

Just in case, it is not clear - my line for Catch the Bug is:
Sentiment - Bugaboo Image - Ribbon
