Beate's Weekend Sketch #13

I finally have a little extra time to work on some cards (extra emphasis on "little" here). Anyway - here is my card for Beate's sketch challenge for this weekend. This was a really fun card to make. After I was done though I had wished that I hadn't used so much pink - maybe I will just have to do another one, right?

I used a lot of retired products on this one - the paper is from the Just Delightful Simply Scrappin' kit that was a SU Sell-a-bration item this past year, the flower stamp was also a sell-a-bration from the set Delight in Life. The sentiment came from the Cute Converse set I got over a year ago and never used until now (I told you before - if I get it for free it is really a toss-up when I will use it).

I have to admit that I had a little trouble with the dimensions on this one. From the sketch it says the card base is 8.5" X 5.5" and tells where to score it. When I did that though - my resulting card was a 5.5" square and I could tell from everyone's cards that were posted that they were getting rectangular cards. Hmmm. So - I started with a base that was 8.5" X 4.25" and I ended up witht a standard size card. Very interesting.
