Saturday Sketch Challenge 139

Hello everyone and welcome to Stamping 411 and a new Saturday Sketch Challenge. Our Stamping 411 Operators have been busy this week designing inspiration cards for you so let's get going!

Here is this week's sketch ...

As you can see, the possibilities with this week's sketch are wide-open. You are limited only by your imagination (and your stamp sets, of course ... but for most of us, that's not a problem). There really aren't any measurements to share on this one so get out your stamps, ink pads, cardstock and embellishments, and go-t0-town!

One potential set of measurements is:

Base: 11 x 4 1/4" scored in half at 5.5 inches
Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4
Layer 3: 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" Note: this is just 1/8" smaller on two sides than layer 2 (still simple)

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!
Okay, here's some inspiration from the Stamping 411 Operators to get you started. Click on each photo to go directly to their blog post.
