Deconstructed Sketch 191/March Verve Diva Inspiration Hop

Deconstructed Sketch 191

Morning! Are you ready for Deconstructed Sketch 191? 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 personal blog, SplitcoaststampersFlickrPinterest, etc). Use keyword DS191.

3. Link back here to Inlinkz at the bottom of the post.

My card today is also for the March Verve Diva Inspiration Hop! Here’s our inspiration pic for the month and our theme is B is for Birthday. Don’t forget the Verve Diva Inspiration Hop always has prizes – you can win my commenting along the hop and by joining us for the challenge! You can read all about it on the Verve Blog!

Our March challenge is B is for Birthday…

Don’t be caught short – make a fabulous birthday card to keep in your stash or give away! Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction – just show us your birthday creations!

Happy Birthday by Jen Shults

I had a lot of fun mixing in all of these challenges today! The colors I used are from this week’s Color Throwdown. I LOVE this color combo. I did a little background stencil/stamping to make  the dotted paper by inking through an old stencil I have. The rest went together super quick!
