The glory of Christmas challenge 38: sketch

For today's Glory of Christmas challenge 38 we are asking you to make something following this sketch:

This is my interpretation of it, using the lovely Penny Black caroling penguins stamp inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. The red paper is Graphic 45 Christmas past collection 'glad tidings' and the other paper is offcuts from My Mind's Eye Glitterbook 12 x 12 papers (I love these and will be really sorry when they have all gone - thankfully, I keep finding pieces!). The sentiment was computer generated and printed.

Please click here to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.
