Anything Goes - Last Challenges of 2012

This is the first chance I've had to post my card which I made for my partner. He loves birds.....of the feathered kind so this image was perfect for him. This was a freebie from Pink Gem which was coloured with Promarkers. The sequins came with some handmade paper that I bought which I glued around the edges. Added some snowflakes and Candi Dots.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Songbird Challenge - Christmas 
Forever Friends - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes
Happy New Year
