Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 274 (TSSC274)

I am happy that you stopped by today!  I hope you are excited to see the new sketch challenge for this week--it is a great one and the samples so are a pretty amazing.  Here is this week's sketch....

And of course we will start off with my card.  I combined my challenge card with the LNS bi-weekly challenge to do a fancy fold card.  Although you can not tell from the outside you can see inside that it is a fancy fold card.  And a fun and easy one at that!

Here is the inside....

It looks much nicer in person!  I love this DP and this new Crisp Cantaloupe color.

Stamps: Banner Greetings, Fabulous Florets, Feels Goods
Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, SoHo Subway DP
Ink: Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe
Other: circle framelits, Deco Labels framelits, Beautiful Wings embosslit, scallop edge punch, markers
My designer paper on the inside is 8 1/2 by 5 1/4 and a I scored at the following marks
2 1/8, 4 1/4 and 6 3/8
then used the framelits to cut out the center opening.  I cut out one smaller from the other color and used the frame of it to back the dp--this makes it stronger and gives it another layer for detail.

Awesome Right!!!
Now it is your turn to play along. 
 Here are a few basic rules for participation...
  1. You have a full week to play along!
  2. Create a new card using the sketch as your inspiration.
  3. Use any products you choose.
  4. Add your card to your blog or other on-line spot and link back to this challenge.
  5. Come back here and add a direct link to your sample for the challenge and NOT you home page of your blog--people will not look for your challenge card--trust me.
  6. And this one is not really a rule but a request--get rid of that word verification!  It makes it hard for us to comment on your samples.  It is easier for you to delete the spam then for us to jump through tons of hoops to comment.  If your put your comments on moderation you do not have to worry about spam--you will have the option to delete it BEFORE it ever goes on your blog so you will ALWAYS be safe!
  7. Have fun and tell you friends to play too!

     Thanks for stopping by--Mary Jo

Very cool! I noticed it on Pinterest and had to track it down. Love what you've done with the Deco Label Framelits and the clever fancy fold!
