iSpy Sketches Challenge ISSC01

A new sketch challenge has begun over at iSpy Sketches.
It's for fun and inspiration and I decided to play along. I chose the Stella B&T paper from CTMh with an olive cardstock base. The stamp set I am using is called "A Tree" (A1124 $6.95) and it's a new release at CTMH. The cocoa cardstock was embossed with my Big Shot and a large dots embossing folder from Quick Kutz. I added some stitching and glitter along with some new CTMH baker's twine (Paradise Asst. Z1702 $4.95) and 3 buttons. The shapes were cut at 3 1/2" (olive) and 3 1/4" (colonial white) using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from CTMH. Thanks for stopping by!
From their blog......

Here's how to play:

Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.

Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC01), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post - not the generic link to your blog.

A new challenge will be posted every Friday at 12.01 AM EST, and you have until noon on Wednesday EST to submit your entry.

You may enter as many times as you like, but please provide a newly designed project with a new link for each additional project.

We will choose the top 2 creations to be featured in our "Top 2 Thursday" post where we will announce who we have picked :) The winners will receive their very own iSpy Sketches blog badge!

Don't forget that you may combine our challenges with others and use supplies from any company that you wish :)

Have fun and we look forward to "spying:" your creations!
