A Vintage Vogue Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This weeks Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers was a lot of fun. It had lots of layers, which is something that I just LOVE! The more the better! Only if I'm not making more than 4 of them at a time! If you have time go on over there and give the sketch a try. They give measurements if you need them. Personally I just eye it and whatever fits in the spaces is what I use.

For my card I used the following:

Basic Black card stock
Very Vanilla card stock
Rich Razzleberry card stock
Razzleberry Lemonade decorative paper
Vintage Vogue set
Teeny Tiny Wishes set
Word Window Punch
Label Punch
Extra Large two step Bird punch
Dew Drops
Rich Razzleberry ink
Old Olive ink

I printed out the sketch and eyed my measurements from there. The printout is pretty close to exact size. I just LOVE that.

I cut the flowers out, not one of my favorite things to do and I sure have cut a lot of these flowers lately. Hmmm, maybe I really like this set??? Ya think!?!?

I sponged my edges with Rich Razzleberry.

I needed a get well card and tomorrow this will be going out in the mail. Because of the dew drops I will have to pay an extra 20 cents because they made it non-machinable. I finally got that postage stuff straightened out. If your envelope is normal it's just 44 cents. If you have brads or other hard items on it that could cause their machine to jam it's an additional 20 cents. If it is more than one ounce it is an additional 17 cents. SO if your card is over an ounce and has brads, etc. on it you will be paying 81 cents to mail your card. Not too bad if you are only sending out a few a month. I certainly wouldn't want to pay that for Christmas cards!

SO there you have it, a card and a lecture on postage! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Oh, Wanda! This is just gorgeous! I have only made one card out of this set, but you can bet I will be playing with it tonight while I watch American Idol. You have inspired me!

I love your card, Wanda. I may have to get that set yet! I used a friend's set, the last time that I made a card with it.

Your color choices are always wonderful. Thanks for your ideas.
