My item is a standard size card.  I really like this paper and thought it was perfect for this set.  Now, I know there is no ROUND frame in the images above, but the really great thing about our acrylic stamps is that you can bend and mold them into other shapes.  So that is why you see a round frame instead of an oval frame.  I used a November sketch from Viva La Verve and trying to stay true to the sketch, it called for a round frame.  Neat huh?  (Note that if you click on the picture it will show details better).
