Yay! We have a sketch challenge for you today at Create with Connie & Mary! Won't you come join us? Sketch challenges are meant to help you set up your card and any shape can be replaced with a shape you prefer. This week, I stuck with the sketch the way it stands:

And my card:

Hey wait, where did that stamp set come from? This is a new stamp set for the month of July and is exclusive. Read more about the promotion HERE!

Okay, now back to my card:

I love the new Delicate Designs Embossing Folders and how you can add just a snippet of embossing anywhere on your card. And notice the ribbon? I punched 2 small holes, one on each side of the layers once they were all glued together and threaded the ribbon into the holes. I then glued down my panels to my card front.

I hope you will consider playing in our challenge this week, we would love to see what you can come up with for the sketch. Thanks for stopping by!
