#TGIFC311 Sketch Challenge

 Hello TGIF Challenge friends!

We hope that this week has been wonderful for you and you have had some time to create. It's Sketch Challenge week here, and this one is a little different than usual....



We want to see what you create with making a "Slimline Card"
Slim line cards can be any dimensions that you choose, as long as they are "long and skinny" but there are a couple of common sizes that we have found (folded dimensions)
Traditional Slimline - 3 1/2" x 8 1/2"  (fits standard business envelope)
Mini Slimline - 3" x 6"

Thank you all so much for all of your amazing cards last week. We loved all of the ideas you shared with us! Congrats to our winner of the challenge:







Now, let's see some Slimline ideas, shall we?
