Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.. Smooches!

Hello! I'm here with my card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC105. It's another great sketch.. I hope you will find some time in your busy week to play along!

I've been wanting to play with Penguin Pals (Taylored Expressions) before this Christmas has come and gone.. aren't these the sweetest little (almost) kissing penguins you've ever seen?! I added a little strip of striped paper (American Crafts) and added some embossing to the sides of my white panel.
