This weekend’s sketch is a Z fold card with a rectangle layer over it. Again, feel free to add extra layers and another shape for sentiments. As long as you can still see the layout in your card and you use the Z-fold, your card is fine for this challenge.

Z-fold cards are really easy. I posted a tutorial for visual learner.

This week, the winner of the random drawing will get 6″ x 6″ sheets of patterned paper from the My Mind’s Eye pack Cosco sold this spring.


To participate in the challenge and be entered in the stamp set raffle, make a card with this layout and upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery.

 If you upload your card on SCS, put WSC25  (NO SPACE INBETWEEN WSC AND 25) in the keyword section. That way we can look at all of them at once!

Post a link to your card to THIS blog entry as a comment. Please add your entry# to it.

I will determine the winner of the clear stamps with on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.
