Take Flight

Good Morning!
I hope everyone got their fill of Black Friday, or better yet, just stayed in and avoided it all!  I managed to unbury my craft area, which had gotten WAY out of hand.  Either my space is shrinking or my supplies are multiplying...Hmmmm.
 I worked on a card last night in my 'new again', organized craft space.  I worked a few challenges into one card.  I really had a tough time with this one; I guess challenges are called challenges for a reason.  The sketch is from Seize the Sketch; I wanted to make a fairly traditional Christmas card, but my mind kept telling me that this was more of a CAS/contemporary layout.  The colors are from Color Throwdown.  I love the combo this week, and the colors themselves were not a problem, but once I got my sketch idea in my head, I had a hard time making the colors fit the idea. 
So, this is what I came up with~

The sketch~
The Colors~

My inspiration came from today's Splitcoaststamper Inspiration site, Horchow's. This is also for Shopping Our Stash's challenge, which is Holiday or Winter theme. 
I took a few liberties with the sketch, adding a sentiment banner, ribbon and an image on the background panel, but I do think the basic sketch is still there.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a glorious weekend!
