Saturday Sketch challenge 160

Good Evening Stampers!

It's time for another wonderful sketch from your operators here at stamping 411. Try checking out the operator blogs to see the different variations on measurements by clicking on their creations below. Make sure you say hi, so we know you've visited! We read all your awesome comments and they keep us going!

Just a friendly reminder, to be fair to all, please do not link to online stores in your 411 post. If you link to a non SU site, that will put all the operators out of compliance, and we need to follow the rules. To make it fair for all we ask that you keep the sales out of your posts and just keep it for fun! Please use any supplies that inspire you.

Many of our operators are convention bound this week. I'm so excited for them and wish them "God's speed" in their travels. I'll live through them while they are gone. This is the first convention I will miss since I became a demo (sniff sniff)..

Moving right along to tonight's post... :D

Measurements: I'm going to take a stab at Kerin's STUNNING card because she's on top. She can correct me later if I get the measurements incorrect. For other measurements, you may try visiting the individual operator blogs.

Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Layer 3: 5 1/4" x 4"
Strip across 4 1/4" x 2 and torn for effect
Layer 5: 2 3/4" square
Layer 6: 2 5/8" square

I'm very impressed with all the operator cards this week and notice as you look below there's also a scrapbook page by Tiffany Bauer. :) Love that!!

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.
