Three challenges in one

Hello everyone,

I thought I'd have a go at doing Three challenges in one for my first attempt.

I took a close up so that you could see the glittery snow!

So - to start with I used the Lily of the Valley sketch as my base - shown below.

I used a download backing paper from Crafter's Companion (http://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/) called twinkling stars. I used snowflakes instead of flowers as I was following a Christmas theme. And when I saw Drake the Penguin - this week's freebie download from Pollycraft Desgins (http://www.pollycraftdesigns.blogspot.com/) I just had to incorporate him into my design. I coloured him in using watercolour pencils and the Artkure water brush. Colouring in this digi image means that this card suits the Bee Crafty challenge (http://www.bee-crafty.blogspot.com/) then I used my Sakura Gelly roll pen for the tassles on his hat - I know they look blue on this picture but trust me they are actually purple! Using this Sakura pen and the snowflake brads - both of which are part of my forgotten stash, mean that my card is suitable for the My Time to Craft challenge too.

Wow, my first challenge (or three as the case may be)! I think I'm going to like this blogging lark. I hope you like my card and of course please feel free to comment.
