Hey there... have a card to share for a couple of challenges:  ColourQ and Seize the Sketch.
This was an interesting sketch for me to work with.  The little strip across the top kinda threw me off, but I think my decision to use some baker's twine instead of a strip of paper was a good one.  The stamps and dies are from Clearly Whimsy Stamps (Travel 2).  I just love that cute little camera... so happy it has a matching die!  To keep things from bulking up too much I embossed the rectangle (Spellbinders long plain rectangle die) on my kraft cardstock instead of using a cardstock piece.  The blue baker's twine isn't a super close match for the blue in the ColourQ combo, but it works!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI rustic white & kraft; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up! Dies:  Whimsy Stamps & Spellbinders; Baker's Twine:  The Twinery
