CHNC challenge extra for May

It doesn't seem possible that four months of the year have gone already and it's time to start the CHNC challenge extra for May. The image is Little penguin winter - decorate tree by Bugaboo Stamps, who are the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and die cut using an X cut parenthesis rectangular die, using a larger one for the green mat. I distressed slightly with stormy sky ink. These and the sentiment were mounted on to clear acetate with white snow spots, which was then matted on to red card. It's impossible here to see that there is a layer of acetate - had to avoid reflection with the photo.

This is also for:
