I'm stepping in for Holly this week and hosting the sketch challenge. I drew up a simple sketch that can be snazzed up if you really feel like it. I chose to make mine pretty CAS - it's a birthday card for my niece! She turned two a week ago today, and her party was this weekend. I paired some bright and cheerful Echo Park patterned paper with the darling Somebuggy Loves You clear stamps set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The little dragonfly is stamped twice, colored, and fussy cut. I adhered the second one (I didn't cut out her head and antennae on that one) right on top of the other one, and popped up the wings.
The measurements for my card (if needed)are:
card base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
purple strip: 1 1/4" x 5 1/2"
teal strips: 1 1/4" x 3"
white cs sentiment panel: 1 /4" wide; the mat is 1/8" larger
Hope you get a chance to play along this week!
