A Card for Several Challenges

Good Morning Ladies, and yes its enough to free the tail of a penquin, hubby has just been out with the dog for a walk and has now gone of to his volunteering job with the local steam railway and Im here waiting for a paper delivery. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sundays with Santa on Facebook, and also this weeks Mo's Sketch Challenge and any other I can find during my browse on Feline Playful. Ive printed this gorgeous image onto white card then used my copics to colour him, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut him out and then used a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with one of the papers from My Polar Friends a digi set from Nitwits, its a fabulous design of snowflakes, and then of course I just had to used my Memory Box border and corner snowflake design dies to finish it of. The sentiment is one from my stash thats been mounted on one of the new X-cut labels dies and stuck in the bottom right hand corner with some brads. The finish this is the two snowflakes in the top right hand corner these where punched out with the Martha Steward Snowflake punches.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
