Now That's A Big Card

Sunday, March 28, 2010

I don't believe I have ever made a card this big.  It measures a whopping 3 3/4 x 9 inches.  I made it to fit in a standard #10 envelope.

I used the MOJO131 sketch for my layout and the Curtain Call Act 23 color challenge for my palette.  As soon as I saw the MOJO sketch, I knew I wanted to make a BIG card just to make sure all my layers were not too teeny.  And I could not resist the color challenge because these colors together are so awesome.  I was up bright and early today because I thought I was going to do some birding in Plymouth, but when those plans fell through, I went straight to my stamp room.  I won't have a chance to stamp this afternoon since I'm going to Borderland State Park for a meeting.  I'm sure you all know how it is trying to squeeze stamping in whenever you can get it!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
