You're Amazing - DS62

It's Deconstructed Sketch day, and this week's sketch is super fun! Here it is:

I took a few liberties, some intended (changing the zigzag to a banner strip and omitting the scallops on the focal panel) and some unintended (never even saw these bottom right sentiment placement suggestion!), but that's the beauty of sketches. Make a few substitutions to suit, while still following the overall guide.

The stamps I used are from Verve: Joyful Blooms for the two flowers and Small Phrases for the sentiment. The flowers were stamped onto one of the patterns in My Mind's Eye's Indie Chic Ginger 6x6 collection, trimmed out and layered. For accents, I added a tiny punched butterfly, some buttons and jute string, clear rhinestones, a punched border, and three small areas of zigzag stitching. It's going to be hard to see in the photo, but I also dotted the flower centers with a black glaze pen for a little shine.

Have a peek at what my fellow design team members did with the sketch. Hope we've inspired you to play along! When you're ready, link up your creation HERE.
