SOUS: Card Sketch Challenge Dec 5-18

We've got a fun new Stuck on U Sketches card sketch challenge starting today! I liked this sketch so much I made the same card twice! LOL, well that's not exactly what happened. When I went to photograph my original card, I discovered that my almost 2 year old had unleashed his inner artist all over my WHITE card!!! Luckily my wonderful DT leaders were very understanding and patient with me and I managed to get a second card made before reveal day. So anywho, here's the sketch we are playing with...
And her is my all WHITE interpretation of the sketch (see how hard it would have been to cover up my little man's scribbles on an all white card?)
I had fun making the card monochromatic. I found a bunch of fun ways to create texture on the card since there was no color definition. I stitched strips of velum to the base of the card. Used a diagonal stripe embossing folder on the tag, and added some snowflake dies on top.
 I finished off the card with lace, shiny string and some beautiful pearls to add some more texture and dimension.

Well, that's it for me today, I hope you will take our challenge and play along for a chance to be featured on the SOUS blog! Link up your cards here by December 18th.
Have a great day


  1. Absolutely beautiful, Becky! I'll bet it was twice as much fun the second time around! :) You created some great texture and I love the use of the vellum! BEAUTIFUL!

  2. in love!!!!!
    first though, you really ought to have taken a pic
    and shared what your sweet (stinker) of a baby did...is that
    the card that Grandma is going to get?
    that's a card a grandparent would so understand and love! LOL!
    but this was worth the wait. maybe white on white but so not
    boring! great texture for sure!

    ok, off to poke around a bit more...

  3. Wow! How brave to do an entirely white card! You've got guts...and mad skills! The end product is incredible! Really love all of the elements and the way you made it pop even though it was all the same color. Nicely done!

  4. I am loving htat white on white. TFS!!!

  5. Loving this monochromatic card Becky, we kinda had the same thoughts for this sketch, though I went with the flowers and you have brought in the textures - perfectly. Would love to have seen the card your little one got his hands on - the 'after' shots of course - lol. Great card... Hugs xx
