Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #11

So, here goes another Sketchbook Saturday, posted on Sunday... :)
Thank you for those who played along last week! I had a lower attendance than usually, but it was my fault - I forgot to link the right sketch in the sidebar, and it was still leading you to the previous challenge. Well done, Chupa :) I'll do better this time!
The sketch below was inspired by this awesome card by Nerina. You know I luv me some layers, but don't feel bound to make a layered card if it's not your style. Feel free to simplify the sketch however you wish!

Yet again I pulled out my MME Gertie paper pad today. Out of the whole Stella & Rose collection, this one attracts me most. I love the rich, vibrant colours and homespun look... {happy sigh}


Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft; paper: My Mind's Eye (Stella & Rose - Gertie); stamps: Penny Black (Flower Gallery), PTI (Fancy Flourishes); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa); sewing machine; buttons; ribbon: SU!; border punch: Martha Stewart; glitter glue: Reeves

I've been wanting to order a suitable die, but in the meantime, I'm cutting the bracket shapes myself. I've got a chipboard shape that I use as a template. I'm not complaining :)

A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:
- You're kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
- Please share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz application, so that I can come and check it out. I would love to see what you did with it!
- The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
- A new sketch and sample is posted every Saturday, but you're welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.

I hope you'll find the time to play along. Have fun with it!
