My Cards and Tags: SOUS March 6th Card Challenge

Another card sketch from Stuck on U Sketches!  This was a unique sketch and it yielded a card that I certainly hadn't planned on making!  I ended up with a baby boy card, but it has roses and a bow.  So while the "manly verdict" may still be out, I liked the finished product.

Here's the sketch by Sandi that I based my card on:

As you can see, I flipped the sketch horizontal for my card and moved the location of the bow.  I used My Mind's Eye paper (surprise, surprise- love MME!) as well as some paper from Pink Paislee.  The big sentiment in the center is a design I cut out from one of the My Mind's Eye pages.  I stuck a piece of Washi tape at the top.  The Washi's from Target.

I made the scalloped bottom portion with a fantastic edge punch from EK Success.  I tied a bow out of some American Crafts ribbon, inked it and I was done!

I know I say this every time I make a card from one of the SOUS sketches, but I truly love the challenge of seeing how I can fill in someone else's wonderful sketch idea!  Kudos to the designers at the SOUS blog!
