Affection Friend + honorable mention

Last week was pretty busy.  But this week is even more busy!  Yes, it is possible.  And to help me tackle all the chores and little projects, I have a list, a time-line, and a game plan! Yahoo!
I created a vintage style Christmas card last week.  I found out that I was one of the honorable mentions {smile}.  I didn't 'win', but it was still totally fabulous to be an 'honorably mentioned cup of tea' #5 here
To start the week off with a bit of creativity and a step or two outside of my comfort zone, I have a bright and beautiful (I think) card.  This week, the ladies @ Nacho Average Challenge have a sketch for this week's challenge.
Here is this weeks sketch:

So here is what I did:

The card base is made from Real Red card stock.  The first matt is Pool Party card stock.  Ok, I know you are wondering about the floral pattern paper.  Well, it is actually an envelope.  I just cut off the flaps.  These beautiful pieces are sold in the holiday mini catalog @ Stampin' Up! on page 35, Sealed with Love Simply Sent.  For the 'friend' I used the Affection Collection stamp set.  The bird is from the Nature Walk stamp set.  This card was quick and easy to put together.  I hope you have been inspired to play along with us, and use our sketch!

Happy Crafting! hugs, Sharon W.
