A Christmas Sketch

Hello everyone!

Wow, November already, not long now until Christmas! Scary huh.......Anyway, since it's a new month, it's a new challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year Round, we are challenging you to make a card following this sketch:
Now, I don't usually do sketches, I don't like them at all. Guess it makes me feel restricted somehow, so I avoid them. But I did like using this sketch, once I got started it went really well to be honest! Here's my make:

It is a fairly challenging sketch, but have a go, you might like it too! See you there, you've got all month! :)
