Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge - SASSC36

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today’s card is for this week’s sketch challenge "SASSC36" over at Stamps and Smiles. Every Thursday we post a NEW sketch, we warmly invite you to play along. One participant from our sketch challenge will win a Stamps and Smiles goodie bag, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.
For my sample I grabbed some Fall paper and added some stitching using my Janome sewing machine. The stamp set is a NEW set by Stamps and Smiles called Fall Harvest. After cutting out the image, I added a few spots of adhesive on the back and picked up little pieces of raffia. The image was stamped in Memento ink and colored in using my Copics. To finish off the card, I substituted raffia for the ribbon.
Since I still had some scraps out, I quickly designed a project by turning a pretzel bag into a fun treat. I took a piece of 4.25 x 11 and scored it at 1" and then folded the rest of the cardstock to form a matchbox. I stabled the pretzel bag to the matchbox and decorated the front. Simple and quick, I think I will have to make a few of these for my kids teachers.

Please stop by the Stamps and Smiles blog to see more samples from the Design Team. There is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able! However to be eligible for the Stamps and Smiles goodie bag, please have your card uploaded by Wednesday, 6 pm CST.

See you soon with more samples and projects, have a fun day!
