Hello friends! It's Crazy 4 Challenges time, and I'm the hostess this month! This week we are making Skinny Cards! Did you resolve to lose weight this year? Let’s give our cards a makeover: go skinny with a card base that measures 3.5” wide by 5.5” tall.

I love this size as you can hang elements off the side and still fit your creation in a regular envelope.
(hint: this is the size left over when you cut a 5” square card base from 8.5x11 cardstock)

Here's my card...

Isn't she adorable? My friend Jenny, who is guesting this month at C4C, is my favorite copic artist EVER! She does these amazing cheeks on her creations, so this is my attempt to be just like Jenny! (check her out, I'm not doing her justice)

I've used Twitterpated (on sale!!) for my card today, as well as the Arrow die. I love this sweetie, I paper pieced her dress and bow.

I've used the January Viva la Verve week 2 sketch for my layout. Did you know you can now find the Viva la Verve sketches on their own blog?! There's a new one every week, and you have a month to play along with each sketch. One lucky participant will be drawn from all the month's entries to win $100 to spend in the Verve store!!

Here's a peek at the simple inside of my card...

Now it's time to go see all the fab inspiration from the design team, happy hopping!
