2 Sketches 4 You - Ultimate Card Showdown

This week over at 2 Sketches 4 You they are having an ultimate card showdown! How cool is THAT? You should really check it out! This is my submission based on the sketch:

It's another Z-Fold card (not that you can tell from this pic), that is a standard A2 sized card. I scored and folded in the middle at 4 1/4" and again on one side at 2 1/8" to create the fold. I used my threading water punch to scallop the edge of the folded side and attached a piece of 3 X 5 1/2" yellow cardstock to the front (though it looks kind of peachy in this picture). Under the scalloped edge and attached directly to the card base is another piece of yellow cardstock cut to 2 X 5 1/2", though you can't see it from the angle in this photo.

The sentiment (from Simply Said) is stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White (once again using my stamp-a-majig). The sentiment panel starts off with a piece of 1 1/4 X 2 1/4" piece of Whisper White and increases by 1/4" incrementally with three other pieces of yellow/orange cardstock.

Hope you continue to have a Stampin' Good Day!
