A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sundays with Santa

Good Afternoon Crafters, I hope your keeping well and no nasty virus's they do seem to be doing the rounds this year dont they? Luckily hubby and I are keeping well so I also hope that my Granddaugher in law is to as shes due to give birth to my brand new and first Great Grandchild in the next 3 weeks, how about that, and my grandson should be back from Afghanistan on the 17th of this month so although hes cutting it short I hope he will be in plenty of time for his baby's birth. Anyway todays card is for this weeks "Birds" Challenge over on Sundays with Santa and if Im luckily for the end of the Sugar Bowl Challenge as well, it finishes tonight.
I have used Funky Kits "Penquins in Love" and I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 to cut it out and then one of the fancy dies for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers are one of the new "Lili of the Valley" Nitwit design pads, Ive used two papers of snow on blue background and blue spots on white.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
