Playing in Paradise Sketch

This week's Playing in Paradise sketch challenge is done with 20 minutes to spare!

I just couldn't pass up this sketch! It's fabulous, Allison!

I didn't have any particular ideas in mind except to use my Half & Half dies and a Christmas theme. Since I was in a rush, and these papers were still out from this project, I went with a rustic Christmas theme.

Nothing says rustic like the dirty front porch in the background!! ;)

I was in too big of a rush and my embellishment vs. sentiment distribution didn't really work out. Oh well!  Love the colors, though!
