I followed this week's fun SCS Sketch Challenge #SC537 
and Ways to use it Challenge to decorate the "Inside and Out" of our projects, #WT528. I try to always decorate the inside of my cards to resemble the outside and I stamp my envelopes. It's more work, but its nice as it makes for more of a unified look!
