Freshly Made Sketches #62

Happy Wednesday!  Wow!  Is this year going by fast or what?!  It's already Thanksgiving (tomorrow) and I can feel Christmas breathing down my neck already.  The new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week comes from Jen Mitchell, and it's a very versatile one!

Today I am stepping back from holiday projects and posting a birthday card.  Lately I've been going through all my patterned paper and trying to whittle it down.  It's so hard for me.  I really have been neglecting it lately.  And when I saw Jen's sketch, I thought it was perfect for patterned paper.  I pulled out a new paper pad I got recently and made this:

And this is the awesome sketch from Jen:
