Saturday Sketch challenge 159

I just love this time of year. And I just loved seeing all this new rubbah getting so much love and attention. (that's my Boston accent coming thru ~ sorry bout that).

Another simple, but fun sketch from your operators... This week, try checking out the operator blogs to see the different variations on measurements.

I'm going to give you the measurements for my card below, primarily, because it's already done! :D

For you card measurements:
Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 1: Cherry Cobbler 3 x 5 1/2"
Layer 2: Crumb Cake 2 7/8 x 5 1/2"
Layer 3: Very Vanilla 3 1/8" x 2 1/8"
Layer 4: Cherry Cobbler 3x2"
Layer 5: 2 1/2" x 1 7/8" watercolor paper

Does the thought of cutting your card stock using measurements baffle you? Well, you can check out the most awesome post on how to read a ruler written by the very lovely and talented Lee Conrey, by clicking here.

  1. Design team did an awesome job with this challenge. I had fun as always playing along thanks for the chance.

  2. So sorry Selene, I have done something wrong here - my card links to this blog instead of mine! How do I delete it and start again? Love all the cards I see here.

  3. Wonderful sketch. Your cards are wonderful. I think I got a little carried away with mine, but it was still fun.
