Layers for Stampin’ Celebration!

Happy Monday everyone! It’s time for a fun new sketch challenge at Stampin’ Celebration!

SCIpix-029My card:DSCN1616I love creating cards with many layers, so this week’s sketch was right up my alley!

Our challenge is open until Friday, July 29th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.

Please head on over to the Stampin’ Celebration blog and check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to love all of their creations!

And as with any challenge, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Feel free to use any brand of product you may have in your Stash.
  • We ask that you create a new project for this challenge and add a link to our blog or use the challenge graphic in your post.
  • Please link directly to the post for this challenge, not your entire blog (so we can find your project better)
  • Please limit the combined challenges on your project to no more then 4 including ours.
  • And Have Fun!!!

Hope to see you in the gallery!

CMCC Full Graphics-015My card:



I, unfortunately, don’t have any Fall or Halloween themed stamp sets or I would have used some pumpkins on my card.  Instead I went with my go-to and created a floral back drop for the sentiment.

The layout comes from this week’s sketch challenge at The Challenge.


My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….! and check them out. We can’t wait to see what you create!!! Antonia, Bhavana, Hayley, Jinny, Julia, Kim, Ren, Tara, Valentyna, and our fabulous Guest Designer for the month of October, Julie!
