I really liked the "clean and simple" feel of the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I wanted to try the bright "Stella" papers that are new from Close To My Heart and this sketch was perfect. The bright scallops on the thin strip is something called a zip strip that they put on all of their papers now. this one gives a splash of color, although I didn't cut it into scallops because I wanted all of the brightness to show. I don't make too many elongated cards. The designers at FMS gave their card sizes which varied from 3" x 6" to 4" x 9." Mine is 3.5" x 8.25."
