Saturday Sketch Challenge 116

Oh Happy Weekend! It's time for another addition of the operator's sketch challenges. Please remember to link to your post and not just to your blog, so we can find your cards later in the week! I try and fix them when I see them. :)

As far as the measurements... I'm going to give the most simple scenario to help those readers who are newest to stamping!

Layer 1: Score a piece of 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock in half at 4 1/4", then cut the piece in half the other way at 5.5". This will yield two card bases.
Tip** by scoring first, you do half the work on a large job.

Layer 2: 4 3/4 x 2 1/4"

Layer 3 and 4: Measure the block for your wooden stamp for layer 4 and cut to size. Matte with a piece of cardstock thats 1/2" larger on two sides. (note, this is different than your normal 1/4" matte. ~~ Getting Fancy!!

Thanks for all the wonderful messages that you leave for our operators. It encourages us and we're excited to be helping so many. However, we are lucky... because we get to see YOUR awesome creations. Every week it becomes more challenging to pick the top 5 and many of the operators don't vote for the same entries. You are all exceptional and we thank you for playing! Here's what our operators have for you this week.

Thanks for playing along~ our links close on Wednesday night. Please join us early Saturday morning for another fun sketch!
