Getting Sketch-y!!

 Hello crafty peeps and welcome to my post for the New challenge at Shopping Our Stash!! it's a sketch.

Here is the sketch, so shop your stash and create something following (as close as you can) the sketch above, you can flip it and make a horizontal card, even tip it upside down, all is good as long as we can see the sketch.  I followed the sketch to a "T". I use sketches all the time but when faced with one for a challenge I seem to get the "deer in the headlights look" and struggle but here iete is.

For my image I used a mini Stampendous stamp I have a "boatload" of them, all occasion and Christmas and since I'm falling behind on my monthly plan to make at least 6 holiday cards a month I just thought I would try to get caught up. The stamp had never seen ink and I am sure it is 4 years old, The embossing folder is older too and one of my favourites, it's Sizzix from Stampin'up called Softly falling. The ribbon is sparkly and quite stiff, I taped it down with soo-wang tape and I have no idea how old it is, my guess is at least 10 years The penguin was coloured and fussy cut and flat attached to the watercoloured background I had in my scrap box and te snow was also an already cut scrap in the same box. I like to see if I have any larger scraps  before I cut a full sheet. 

Close up of the super adorable penguin. 

Finished the inside with a scrap of red and a Stampendous sentiment. (one of my first sentients I bought when I started stamping) 

I'm entering this in:

Cute penguin, he's really fun, and the snowy background always works. The red looks festive, bringing it all together.

Oh my gosh that is a supercute penguin and as usual you've colored him perfectly; I love how you fussycut him and put him on the watercolor "sky"... then that pretty snowy e/f extends the scene out into the rest of the sketch! Brilliant job of SHOPPING YOUR (sketchy!) STASH! ♥♥♥
