A Sketch Challenge, Clean & Simple!

For this Friday's Stamp Simply Challenge we are offering a Clean and Simple Sketch for you to follow. There are so many different looks achieved when using the same basic sketch, and we want to see what your creation will look like! If you want to dress up this basic sketch that is just fine too! The most important challenge rule: have FUN!!
I altered the sketch a bit to accommodate the images I used. I made simple 4x4 cards. The front panel from fold to edge is 2 1/4" with image being adhered on the left side allowing it to extend off the paper edge. The images come from Crafty Secrets Halloween Images & Journal Notes. I LOVE these paper pads. You can find them at The Stamp Simply Store. I trimmed off the tops of two pages to get the images here. Wide ric rac with a darling button embellish the image perfectly! A few adhesive pearls and jute string and we are good to go! Here is an opened card to see how the front panel manuevers. The paper on the card inside is from October Afternoon's Fly A Kite. Super fun, simple, and easy! I thought since many are creating for the holidays in July I may as well get some Halloween cards completed! LOL Hope you get to play along this week. Use keyword ssnotime149 if you upload to a public forum. Please remember to upload on Sharon's Mr Linky too! Let us know if you post on your blog, we want to see your take on the sketch! Take good care! Check out the fabulous Stamp Simply Challenge designers!
