Saturday Sketch Challenge 150 (SSC150)

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful week! This weeks sketch is very clean and simple. For more details on any of the cards you see below, just click on them below..

I added a LOT of layers to my card below, and since they are already done, here's one potential set of measurements for my "here for you ~ map card" below.

Base layer is: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded in half a 4 1/4"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Layer 4: 3 3/4" x 5"
Layer 5:4 1/4" x 3 3/4"
Layer 6: 4 1/8" x 3 5/8"
Layer 7: Dsp 4 x 1 and 4 x 1 1/2" (whew)

Feel free to keep it simple and make your own measurements!!!
