Are you ready for Deconstructed Sketch 117? I hope you like it! Here’s the scoop on what you need to do:
1. Use the sketch up top to make a project, any kind you like using any image you like. Use the sketch to inspire your own creativity. Feel free to substitute shapes for what you have available and mount tags and circles to a card base if you’d prefer.
2. Post it somewhere on the internet (your blog, SCS, Flickr, etc). Use keyword DS117 if you post to an online gallery like Splitcoaststampers.
3. Link back here to Inlinkz at the bottom of the post so I can stop by and see it.
4. Be sure to hop over to our Facebook page throughout the week to see if your card is featured!
For my card I used a brand new Taylored Expressions stamps set called Big Bold Birthday along with Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper. I used the new Bloomin’ Stacklets 1 to make the flower up in the corner and the leaves are part of the Mini Leaves Die set. I added a little stitching here and there along with some inking and distressing.
I made two versions of my card using different patterned papers from the Vintage Bliss pad. Here’s the second card:

DT Update: I always hate typing these up. We are saying goodbye to another DT member today. Tobi is stepping down to make room for some very exciting opportunities outside of crafting. We are so sad to see her go because she is so very talented and a wonderful inspiration and so very creative.
We are also adding a new design team member this week! I am so very excited to announce that Kim O’Connell is joining us as our newest full time design team member. Kim has been a very consistent player each week and has such a great sense of design and always creates the cutest projects!
