Deconstructed Sketch #169

DS169 cropped
Hey kids, what time is it?  No, NOT Howdy Doody time!  It’s Deconstructed Sketch time!  LOL  (I may be just a little over-tired as a type this!)  Jen’s got a great sketch for us this week.  Check it out!

Different, don’t you think?  But give it a try… I think you’ll find some fun possibilities with this!  I’ll admit I was scratching my head at first, trying to come up with an idea but once I got started everything came right together.

I went with a get well theme for my card because our Catered Crop challenge this week is all about making cards that are “good medicine.”  So I used Get Well Wishes from My Favorite Things, repeatedly stamping the big block letter sentiments for my background in Natural Premium dye ink on kraft card stock.  Then I used the pinked circle from Blueprints 13 on the top left corner, cut from Factory Green card stock, and added some flowers cut from Tangy Orange card stock using Blueprints 12.  The “feel better soon” sentiment is stamping in Olive Hybrid ink on a Whip Cream card stock Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX die cut.  On the lower right side, I added a punched photo corner.
Be sure to stop over at Jen’s blog for all the challenge details, and visit the rest of the team for more inspiration…
Also, be sure to visit Linda’s blog over at the Catered Crop blog for details on the Good Medicine Recipe Swap.
Here are my supplies...

Corner punch is from Stampin’ Up.

I really love this card! The background stamping is perfect and ties everything together so well! I have to admit it took me several tries to come up with something for this sketch! ;) Have a great day, Tammy!

Absolutely love this! These sketches always look so busy to me but you have a way of using them so cleanly it makes me think I can do it too! :)
