For my first card (and the second one below) I used the sketch from Christmas Cards All Year Round, which really got the creative juices flowing. I'm sure I'll be using this sketch a lot!

Patterned papers: Marianne Design - eline's Traditional Christmas
Snowflakes: Cuttlebug die
Penguin: Marianne Design decoupage sheet - eline's snow-friends 2
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year Round - sketch, see above
Winter Wonderland Challenge - Christmas Presents
