Saturday Sketch Challenge 203

It's hard to believe that by this time next week, I'll be cruising along side so many of my buddies on an Alaska cruise thanks to all my stamping friends/customers and Stampin' Up! I'm really excited...

I started this card over 3 weeks ago... I did everything but the sentiment, then I went into a stall... so I put this card up on my display wall, and looked at it every day until yesterday morning. I thought it could use a flower or another embellishment, and then.. I added a sentiment and stopped! Too funny... sometimes good design is knowing what NOT to do to a card. :D It's really bright and pretty on it's own.

I really love the lattice die from sizzix and thought that it would really fit the bill for Gretchen's sketch over on stamping 411 this week. Such a cute sketch!

So ~ here are my measurements for this week's card.

Base 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4" in pacific point cardstock I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo, but it's stamped with a butterfly, then embossed with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.
Layer 3: 3 1/2" square, whisper white
Layer 4: 3 3/8" square, pacific point
Layer 5: 3 1/4" square, whisper white
Layer 6: is the lattice die element cut from the big shot

Very simple and very pretty! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton

What a striking card! The lattice reminds me of an intricate stained glass window in a church. Lovely!

Have a fabulous time on the cruise!
