My Cards and Tags: SOUS February 20th Card Challenge

Well kids, it's time for another fantastic card challenge from SOUS (Stuck On U Sketches)!  Have you checked out the SOUS blog yet??  I'm telling you-- I'm a believer!  I never used card sketches much until I discovered their blog.  Now I always look forward to their card sketches and love to "fill in the blanks," as it were.  So here's the card I created....

....from Leah Schaeffer's sketch (she's awesome, by the way):

For my card, I used paper from Recollections and Pink Paislee.  I also threw in a Prima flower (cause you know by now that's just how I roll) and a bottle cap from The Paper Studio.

The cool thing about the bottle cap is that it's pre-flattened.  Not that I don't enjoy getting out my aggression by smashing a bottle cap every now and again, but I thought these were kind of a nifty variation.

I've included a dimensional shot so you can see how nice and flat the bottle caps are:

All of the text on this card was cut out from printed pages and of course, I had to finish it off with polka dots.

Thanks again to the ladies who run the SOUS blog and for my fellow Design Team members.  They're always inspiring!
