Happy Friday, crafty friends! Are you ready for the weekend? This week was a special one because we are celebrating our 50th Share Joy Challenge! Wouldn’t it be great to spend the weekend creating something terrific with this week’s awesome sketch and inspiration photo? To get you inspired, we’re sharing Creative Team member Jean Manis‘ take on this week’s challenge. Check it out…





Jean used the sketch as a jumping off point to show off our Best in the World stamp set and Whole Wide World die set in perfect harmony. We just love all the ways she was able to take several different patterns of paper and blend them together into one cohesive card. To do this, Jean used coordinating colors (drawn from the inspiration photo) and kept a fairly plain center on her card, while cutting her globe from plain cardstock to keep things in tune.


Here’s a close-up of Jean’s card. Love the stitched details!



Thanks so much, Jean, for sharing your take on our Share Joy Challenge! As a bonus, here’s a fun take from SJC Coordinator Jen Shults…all hail the grill master! Be sure to check out the Share Joy Challenge for yourself and show us your best stuff — and you could win a prize!
