Sketch #254

Happy May! Boy, where did April go? The year just seems to be flying by.

A big thanks to all of you who were inspired to make a card for our last sketch. The linked up cards looked great.  🙂

Like our last sketch, Sketch #254 is a nice middle-of-the-road sketch. It has an overall CAS design — with just enough elements to make for some interesting layers and embellishments.

Sketch 254

This week’s sketch was inspired by a wonderful card from Carol E. Carol’s card has a soothing palette that would work for guys or gals. And, don’t you just love the sophisticated look achieved with these tone-on-tone background layers?! Carol found inspiration from a Debra Currier card that she found on Pinterest. Since Carol’s so busy making cards that she doesn’t have time to blog, please leave her some OWH love in the comment field below.

Sketch 254 - sample

Can’t wait to see how you interpret this week’s sketch! Maybe you’ll include an embossed element or two and link up your card for both the sketch and ODBD challenges.  🙂




  1. I really love Carol’s card and as an embossing folder junkie I’d love to know who makes that one!! Love the color palette, too

  2. It is a sophisticated look. And not your everyday color which is always fun. 🙂

    Got a little of everything going on-embossed, die cut, stamped…nice!

  3. Love the color palette

  4. Love this sketch and Carol’s sample card! The sketch has a lot of possibilities, and I like how some of it’s not centered.
