Saturday Sketch Challenge 1/23

My card for today's Sketch Challenge is a CASE of a card that Susan Kubira sent to my sister. My sister is suffering from a form of Psoriasis that has covered 95% of her body and not only makes her look like a burn victim but now has compromised her immune system. She is doing well but is on "House arrest" so she doesn't get an infection from anyone.

You can see the sketch here Be sure to follow the links to see what the rest of the design team has done!!!!


Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Basic Brown
Accessories: Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Heart to Heart Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

This project is one we did today that I also wanted to share with you. I got the idea for the box on the left from Jackie Topa It's made from our Movers and Shapers Die! It is so adorable. At my stamp camps sometimes a customer doesn't want a 3D item so she'll make it a different way. Today, LindaB did that and came up with the card on the right. Isn't it great?????

Cardstock: Pretty in Pin, Sending Love Specialty Designer Paper, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Movers and Shapers Big Shot Die, Eyelet Border Punch, Crimper, Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon

Have an awesome weekend!!!
