Saturday Sketch Challenge 168

Good Evening Friends!

I think it's been a crazy week with the children returning to school and new schedules. I know I still feel a little displaced.

Well ~ we have another super fun sketch challenge for you tonight and some utterly STUNNING creations to share from your operators. I hope that you have time to play along with this uber simple sketch.

One potential set of measurements for this card could be:

Base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: 3 3/4" square,

Layer 4 could be a ribbon going across and a punched shape or two on top. If you wanted paper layer 4 could be cut to 4x1".

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.

As with EVERY week, if you need to change it up, do so! You just want to use this sketch as a jumping off point for your design then let your imagination do the rest!

So what do you think of our new schedule? Do you like all the added posts? Honk (or leave a comment) if you really like what you see. It's been very fun for us to see all the talents that are here on 411. If you have suggestions on how to make the site even better, just leave us a comment. :D
