Saturday Sketch Challenge 137

Welcome to another sketch challenge from your operators at stamping 411! Thanks for visiting! I've heard stories from folks this week who play along but have never uploaded a card!

To all that play along ~ thanks for keeping it fun for us!

It's another fairly simple sketch this week. I hope you have some time to play along! Here's one set of potential measurements.. Oh yea for me ~I'm going to cheat a little here! Robin already did the measurements on her card. Since she's on top this week I'm going to give you her measurements. Please keep in mind you can do what works for you. A very embellished card that has lots of layers or cut back on the layers and try to go clean and simple?? That's up to you!

So Saffron card base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded in half to make an A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
Certainly Celery layer 2: 4" x 5 1/4"
Very Vanilla layer: 3 3/4" x 5" (dry embossed with the Big Shot and the Perfect Details Texturz Plate, then sponged with So Saffron ink)
Certainly Celery layer: 2 1/4" x 4 1/2"
DSP layer: 2 1/8" x 4 3/8" (sponged with So Saffron ink)

Each operator gives more detail about her card on her blog (links from the names below).

Now it's your turn. Never played along with us 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"
  4. Have some fun and leave comments for each other (and for the operators if you like their work). ~ Everyone loves comments!
