Bug A Boo "Go for the Gold" challenge

Over at the Catch the Bug challenge blog for Bug a Boo stamps, their challenge this week is Go for the Gold/Olympic Theme.  I have been really enjoying watching the Winter Olympics.  When I was a kid, my Mom and I would be glued to the TV watching all the events.

So I came up with this quick and easy card.  I found a jpg of the Olympic rings and combined it with the little penguin (a freebie on BugABoo's Paper Craft Planet group) and this adorable snowman for sale in their store.  I printed my image onto Ice Gold paper, I wanted a true white and it has a lovely gold sparkle when you tilt the paper.  Copics used:
Penguin - C4, C0
Feet - YR16  Eyes - B14
Snowman - B000
Scarf - R29, B14
Arms - E43
Nose - YR16
Hearts - R29

Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  Be sure to check out the challenge for wonderful inspiration from the design team and play along to win free digi images from BugABoo stamps.
