So, I'm a little behind on sketch challenges this week. I blame the Snowman Soups!!!! Either that or everything else that's going on this time of the year. Work was just crazy today and I needed to relax so I whipped up this card for this week's sketch challenge in about 5 mins. Seriously.....it was that quick. I picked up the top Basic Grey paper pack from my shelf, picked a printed paper from there and 2 coordinating solid colors and my neutral and went with it. The color scheme seemed kinda "manly" so I didn't want to over embellish it and just kept it simple. I even managed to add in the "friend to friend" sentiment at the bottom. I used my Cuttlebug folder on the base and rubbed a sponge with Chocolate Chip ink lightly over it to bring up the detail. And I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. And it was just the relaxing card I needed.....well that and the Captain's and Diet Coke sitting next to me. hee hee!!!!
