Saturday Sketch Challenge #180

Hello everyone and welcome to a new Saturday Sketch Challenge at Stamping 411!

This week's sketch gives you two focal images to work with, which gives you a lot of flexibility. You can put a graphic in one and a sentiment in the other, or use punches or embellishments for the smaller shape. The possibilities are really endless!

Here's some possible measurements for you to begin with:

  1. Layer One -- Card Base cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded in half
  2. Layer Two -- 4 x 5.25"
  3. Layer Three -- 2 x 3.5"
  4. Layer Four -- 1.75 x 3.25"
  5. Layer Five -- 1.5" Square
  6. Layer Six -- 1.25" Square

As always, use this as a place to start and let your imagination take you where it will! We know you will do a fabulous job!

  3. Thanks again for a great sketch. It got my thinking cap on!

  4. I am so excited to play along for the first time this week. I was completely inspired by this sketch as soon as I saw it along with the great creations from the DT. I actually jumped ahead today and made a Valentine's Day card, for fun! Thanks so much! :)

  5. Thanks for another brilliant sketch. I love playing along so much!

  6. Well I am here before 8 and the linky is closed. Darn, I can't get this right. Here is my card anyway.


  7. I missed this too but I did make a card with your awesome sketch this week. Thanks.

    Wishing you a great day!
