Saturday Sketch Challenge 165 ~ SSC165

Good Evening Friends!

How fun! Another fun and simple sketch from the operators at stamping 411.

To see the operator creations and read all about their cards, just click the link on the right hand sidebar at the top.

If you're uploading your card to an online gallery, please use keyword SSC165. If you've never done a challenge and you're looking for a place to post your cards so folks can see them, one of my favorite places to post cards is stampin addicts. If you want, you can check it out!

One potential set of measurements could be:
Base: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: (you could cut a circle or use a circular stamp for this element..
Layer 4: (strip up the right hand side of the card or a piece of ribbon).
layer 5: (focal point large white 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Sentiment, punched and tucked underneath layer 5.

Above all please have fun and just go for it! 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.
