The Challenge #3 {Hello}

Hello stamping friends and welcome to The Challenge #3

This week I had fun with a "skewed" panel! My sketch came together quickly! I hope you enjoy it and play along. I would love to see what you create with my sketch! The measurements for my card are below the sketch.

Here are the card measurements that I used to create my card:
Card Base 4.25" x 11" scored at 5.5" (A2)
Striped Piece 3.75" x 5"
Skewed Gray Panel 2.5" x 4.50"
White Panel 2.5" x 4"

See that piece of designer paper on an angle...yep, that means "skewed"! I dug into a stash of old Stampin' Up papers and it gave me the colours for my card. I also used a retired floral set...one of my favourites! But if you wanted to do something similar any floral set would work! My colour combo is Coastal Cabana, Cajun Craze, White and Black.

You have until Sunday, April 6th at Noon (PST) to play along:
