That's why it's a challenge....

So this was the sketch challenge on Splitcoast last week.
It was such a weird sketch that I almost didn't play along, but that's why it's a challenge right?
After some thought, I decided to give it a go.
Here's what I came up with...
Remember a set from an SU mini a long time ago called "Pattern of Friendship"? It's one of my most favorite sets that they've ever released and is a total keeper for me.

I used Close to Cocoa for the base and accented with Vanilla and Rose Red cardstock.

When I was thinking of ideas for my Christmas version of the sketch, I decided to flip the sketch 90 degrees. As soon as I did that, I saw an envelope shape and decided to just go with it.
Here's what I came up with...
I used Vanilla cardstock and SU's "Winter Post" stamp set.
Quick post today - I'm sick and need to get some rest.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with a new recipe to Fool Your Family.

What a perfect idea to use an envelope template. It fits perfectly. I love the vintage look to your card. I never bought that stamp set but it's a nice one. Awesome job on the sketch Mackenzie!!
