Sketch plus 3 Challenge

When I first started stamping I stalked Joanne B's blog & was always inspired by her amazing cards.  When my BFF moved to the states she was introduced to Joanne by Em from Stamping Bella and when I went to visit I got to meet Joanne - for me she's a rock star so I was SOOOO excited!  Joanne is as sweet as you can imagine (and teeny tiny!!) she told me I wasn't allowed to just "stalk" her blog but to say hi every once in awhile :)   

Joanne is now celebrating that her blog has been visited a half million times - WOW!!  She really is a rock star (or stamping star)  She has a great challenge going this week - a sketch plus 3.  Click here for all the details.  

I inked up one of my PI stamps from MFT (they are so sweet!) called my umbrella and stamped the image on bella's bestest cream paper.  The image is coloured with copics, and I paper pieced her umbrella and her boots. (1st check on my plus 3).  I added some gingham patterned paper from quite contrary (2nd check on plus 3) and I sewed around the edges of the baja breeze card stock and the pattern paper all from my minds eye quite contrary (check 3 on plus 3)  I then managed to add two more of the choices - bling and kraft paper!!  The scallop punch along the bottom is from EK success and I added some tiny rhinestones along the bottom.  

With using the Kraft paper I also played along with Jeanie's Krafty Thursday this week (TKT27)  

I hope you have a chance to play along with Joanne's sketch plus 3 challenge it is so amazing that she has had half a million visits to her blog; she is one talented  sistah!!

I must try paper piecing - this is super cute! Love the bright vibrant colors and your bling along the big scallop. Big scallops are to die for and yours is doubly scalloped. Whoo Hoo.
