Wyatt and Friend for MFT WSC challenge

The My Favorite Things WSC challenge this week was to create a "last minute" Christmas card using one of the Pure Innocence images.  
Well, I am not one to make anything last minute.  Not because I'm so organized and get everything done beforehand, but because I take forever to make anything!  LOL.  I am a perfectionist and slow as molasses.  My friends tease me that I may complete two layouts at an all day crop (if I'm lucky).
However, my recipe for completing a card as quickly as I can is to use a great sketch (letting someone else do the design planning) and picking some great paper and an image that fills the card nicely (such as many of MFT's stamps).
Mojo Monday's sketches are among my favorites, and sketch 169 seemed perfect for using my MFT Pure Innocence Wyatt Just Chillin' stamp that I won during one of the release parties. 
I've fallen in love with the BoBunny Midnight Frost collection and used it on three of my last few cards!  The blues and purples are perfect for wintery images without having to resort to traditional Christmas colors.
The sentiment is from Unity's super cute Jolly Good Fun set.
I have a little boy turning 6 shortly.  This will be his card to Mimi and Pop-pop. Thanks for looking!
