Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess for September. Danielle Lounds continues to bring us a fun challenge.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for a sketch challenge



For my card today, I decided to play with a new embossing folder/die set I recently purchased while out with a couple of friends. So I went with a nautical theme. The stamp set used here is from Penny Black.


As you can see I have created a pop up card using the Lucy Label Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I have also used the embossing folder again on the top portion of my card.


Here is a side on view of my card so you can see the pop up part of my card a little easier.
