ISS sketch challenge and more...

Good afternoon and happy September 1st to you! It's time for InStyle Sketch Challenge. Here is the super fun sketch for the month of September. I made a T-slide card, you can find the tutorial at SCS here. I decided to use this cutie pie called Janice. I love her adorable outfit, it reminds me of my school uniform when I was in secondary school in Hong Kong.

Here is the front of the card. I love, love, LOVE the Basic Grey Basic white paper, it's perfect for this. I even made a little book with the smallest dies from the label 7. I was in the mood of some earthy colors.

And here is the side view... I used the sentiment from the Amuse school time set. The T-slide parts were just MS cardstock, but I stamped them with Cover-a-card background stamp screen to create some texture. Viola!! However, I didn't thought of it until after the photo was taken. I should of use some pop up tape for Janice, it would of look better when the card opens. But it was 2am when I had this card done. My bad.Smiley from millan.netLesson learned!!!

Goodies that I used:
Paper: MS cardstock, Basic Grey basic white paper pad
Stamps: InStyle Stamps Janice, Amuse school time set, Impression Obsession cover-a-card background stamp screen
Other: Copic markers, TH distressing ink pad, washi paper tape, nesties label 7

I hope you can play along this month. You can win free InStyle stamps!!! Two digis if you used ISS image and one digi if you didn't.
