Oh Christmas Sketch, Oh Christmas Sketch

I'm earlier than usual playing along with the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge,  It is a fabulous sketch I love it because I can use one or more of my 12 tag dies, I seemed to accumulate a few but they won't go to waste since I LOVE this sketch.  First up is a super cute penguin I have had on my table since last year (well moved 3 of them from spot to spot) It was coloured and the background was also a scrap of oxide background. So here is my rendition of the sketch.

I haven't been in the red/green mode lately for Christmas cards and since this is Winter  I needed to go with the blues. The snowflake strip is from Elizableth craft designs and the let it snow from Tim Holtz holiday words. The swirl I used is part of a leaf swirl I've had for years and two of the swirls minus the leaves made a perfect hanger for my tag. The penguin was cut in white and coloured with alcohol markers the eyes and beak are scraps of cardstock. 

Finished the inside with a scrap of patterned paper and a Stampendous sentiment. 

I'm entering this in:

This is beautiful! And how handy that you had some of the bits already done. Don't forget all those tags when it comes time for 25 Days of Christmas Tags! ;)

Your card is beautiful.
The inside is so pretty, it could be another card on its own.
