Neutral Christmas

Wow, can you believe that it is already November?  Where has this year gone?  I have been busy making different paper crafts for the craft fairs that I am attending this holiday season.  You would think that I still have a week.  But, I am having a medical procedure on Monday, and I'm trying to get everything done by Sunday.  That way, if I'm not feeling well, I can rest and not worry about what I have left to create, embellish, or finish.
On this day, the talented ladies over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday have a great sketch for you to work with.  If you have stopped by SFF before, you will notice a change.  We no longer do the blog hop.  All of our cards are posted right there on the main blog.  So, I hope that we inspire you!
Here is this week's sketch:

Here is what I created:

This card was a lot of fun to create.  I wanted to use 'stuff' that anyone would have on hand, so you can use what you already own.  I used two neutral colors and a few different embellishments.  I used early espresso card stock for the card base.  I used a scrap piece of very vanilla card stock for the main panel. I had a strip of pattern paper that had the same colors, so I added it, to tie the colors together.
Instead of a rectangle piece, I added a multi loop bow and tag.
I hope that you get a chance to play along with us @ Sketch Frenzy Friday!
