First Freshly Made Challenge!

Last night I was blog hopping & found this fun website that does sketch challenges! Sometimes I struggle with layouts & I loved their clean sketches so I decided to play along! Here is the sketch & my card.

Inside Card
I spent some time yesterday trying to get my craft room in order. Good news is I can walk in there now & actually see alot my desk but it's far from done. Anyway I found way too many pieces of pre cut cardstock so I thought I would try to use some of it up. I had the small black & vanilla pieces cut from a couple stamp a stack classes ago so I stamped them with the hot air balloon from the You're Amazing set. I also found the pre stamped thanks & I needed some thank you cards so it worked out perfect. Thanks for taking a peek today I'll be back tomorrow with our Technique Tuesday card!!!
OH WAIT almost forgot the winners of the blog candy!!!
