Saturday Sketch Challenge #157

Good Evening to you friends!

Here's another simple Saturday Sketch for you to try. This one's a little different in that the focal image hugs the right side of the card.

This week's sketch makes a quick and wonderful card as you can see by the gorgeous operator samples below! :)

Let's get started with the measurements from Patti's card since she's on top this week:
Base: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
1st: 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
2nd: 5 x 3 3/4"
3rd: 2 7/8" x 3 7/8"
4th: 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
5th: 2 1/4" square

Does the thought of cutting your card stock using measurements baffle you? Well, you can check out the most awesome post on how to read a ruler written by the very lovely and talented Lee Conrey, by clicking here.

So ~ let's check out your operator creations! To be transported to the individual blogs, just click on the photos below.
