I can't get enough of October Afternoon's 5 & Dime collection from My Scrapbook Nook's July Kit. I just love the papers. Have you already seen the sneak peeks of the new October Afternoon collections? I can't wait to get my hands on all three collections. Today's card is based on sketch FTL149 from Clean & Simple Stamping. Last night I visited some of my favorite sketch challenge sites and when I came across the new sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping I immediately had an idea about my card. A perfect sketch to use my Papertrey Ink Boxy Banners die. I'm not too happy about the heavy inked edges. I refilled my ink pad, but it was still a bit too wet.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft, Sawdust) | Patterned paper, rubber charm: October Afternoon (5 & Dime) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Make a Wish) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative (AD01CB101) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Doily Details Collection, Small Scalloped Border Die, Boxy Banners Die), sewing machine

I also want to share a photo of some of the new colors of crinkled ribbon I added to my store Cards & Wishes.

18 New colors were added this weekend. You can find all colors here.

Happy Sunday!
