Saturday Sketch Challenge #176

Hello everyone and welcome to a new Saturday Sketch Challenge from the Stamping 411 Operators!

Look at the sketch we have for you this weeek! Looks like fun, doesn't it? The main thing to remember with this sketch is that your focal image needs to extend off the center mat. Other than that, let your imagination and creativity take flight as you make this sketch your own. Your Stamping 411 Operators can't wait to see what you create this week!

I'm going to give you measurements for my Birthday Balloon card (scroll down to the bottom), but I suggest you visit the individual operator blogs if you are looking for more info about their cards and projects. And while you're there, don't forget to leave them a little love by leaving a comment. We all love to hear what you have to say and appreciate your feedback!

Here's the measurements:
  1. Layer One -- Rose Red Cardstock cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded in half.
  2. Layer Two -- DSP cut at 4 x 5.25". Stretch the ribbon across about halfway up.
  3. Layer three -- Rose Red cut at 3.25 x 3.75"
  4. Layer Four -- Whisper White cut at 3 x 3.5". Stamp images and add embellishments. Add sentiment "tag" to the bottom of the layer.

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.
