Saturday Sketch Challenge 242

Good Evening Friends!

Last Friday I got an email from someone who plays along.  Her post was deleted and she couldn't figure out why.  Many times when we delete a link, we follow it up with an email (very uncomfortable for us because we're not the blog police).  {smiles}  Many times, we simply remove the link. 

We do list the rules of play at the bottom and keep it a sales free zone so no matter who you are (a demo or someone who already has a demo), you or your customers are not going to be marketed to here by us or anyone else.  

Okay now!  It's sketch challenge time!  I love a good sketch challenge, because it provides a great jumping off point for a card or scrapbook page.  It takes one of the decisions out of the design process by giving you a "map" of sorts.  As always, you can feel free to change up the sketch to do what inspires you!

First, some potential measurements:
Base Layer:
  11 x 4 1/4" scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 3 stamped, punched popped up images on the right
Layer 3: some sort of element in the top left. 

You can keep it clean and simple, or to bump up and make something stunning! 

Here are your operator samples for sketch 242.



Are you ready to play along? We sure hope so! Never played with us before?? Well, it's easy! Sky's the limit!
  1. Make a card using your Stampin' Up Supplies!
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum
  3. Post a link to the free linky tool below (please point the link to your post and NOT just your blog).
  4. Have some fun and leave comments for each other (and for the operators if you like their work). ~ Everyone loves comments!
  5. Please note, we reserve the right to remove links with non-Stampin' Up! product, "sales pitches", links to online stores, or requests to join your team. We're here to have fun, learn from one another and share.
We hope you join us this week and play along with this sketch! But don't delay our links will close at 8AM on Thursday morning Eastern Standard Time.

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
