It's a Stamp Simply Sketch Challenge!

Today fellow team designer, Jenn Buck created our Stamp Simply sketch challenge. Thank you SO much, Jenn! It’s a terrific one and we can’t wait to see all the creations it inspires! I used this fantastic sketch for the front of this accordion gift card holder. I had to adjust the size a bit, and turn my square focal point image, but all in all, I love the look!
Here is the sketch for you to follow. Please upload using keyword ssnotime139 over on Splitcoaststampers, link to Sharon's Mr Linky over on her blog, or be sure to leave a comment so we can come see what you created! And the most important requirement of all, have FUN!
Now for a few details. My image comes from the JustRite Set, Applique. I am in LOVE with these images. AND this is your lucky shopping day! ALL JustRite products are on SALE in The Stamp Simply Store! That's right, 20% off until Tuesday, May 18th, 8am eastern standard time! I used Copic markers on my Memento Tuxedo stamped image. I then cut the image using my square EKSuccess punch. All cardstock is SU, and all patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Duck in a Row. LOVE this paper! It can be purchased HERE.
And another angle of the front of the accordion! The buttons are sewn with my 1/8" silk ribbon, and the image buttons have a beautiful sheer polka dot ribbon. All ribbon is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! *********************************************************************
Thanks so much for stopping by! Tomorrow I will show you the inside of this accordion gift card holder. I am creating two of them for my friend who is battling breast cancer, she wants to gift her chemo nurses. She's always thinking of others, and I am thankful I can help her in such a small way! Take good Care!!!

Hi Barb; I found your blog to-day and must say your work is "fabulous". I couldn't find a link to your email so I hope you don't mind me asking here; I am hosting an 'Early Bird Christmas Crafting' from my blog shortly and would like to ask for your permission to copy a couple of your photos and put them in a post with a link about your gift ides for my folowers to come over and gain some inspiration for our first section, which will be "making mini gifts'.
Thanks in anticipation.
Kind Regards
Judith from Australia
