Sketch Challenge 128

Another amazing week of card submissions from our readers. We thank you so much for your readership, friendship, and for playing along with some fabulous creations (of course!)

We had a wonderful time giving away blog candy, and hearing thoughts from all of you on how to make our blog even better! Thanks to all of you who left comments. We really enjoyed reading them and talking about some changes.

Speaking of changes, wasn't Patti's new color inspiration fantastic? If you want to get really fancy, you could try this new sketch on for size, and use Patti's Color Inspiration to make it a double challenge! Double fun!

This week, Operator Lee is at the top of the list. So let's give measurements for her fantastic card. (Now ~ isn't that paper piecing adorable?)

Layer 1: 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2" and folded in half to form the base.
Layer 2: 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" (black)
Layer 3: 1 x 4" (designer paper)
Layer 4: 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 5 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" ~ not sure how to do that? Check out Lee's post on how to read a ruler.

Never played before? Well, it's easy!

  1. Make a card
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum
  3. Post a link to Mr. Linky (Please be sure to link to your post and not just to your blog so we can find your post a few days later). need directions on that? Check out our posts on "how to use mr linky"
Above all, please have fun and make something beautiful!
