DS64 - U Matter

Happy Thursday. Are you ready for a new Deconstructed Sketch? Jen has given us a beautiful sketch with lots of possibilities this week. Here it is:

In my mind, my sketch sample is filled to the brim with all manner of elegance -- must be that big bow. Unfortunately, that sample is still in my mind - LOL! I waaaay overslept and didn't even start on my card until about an hour ago. Many of you will have heard me lament how slow a crafter I can be. A 45-minute card is unheard of for me! I'm just glad I somehow managed to create something passable, even if it's a little plain. All thanks go to my favorite Verve die-cut, the chunky letter "u" from the I Heart U Die Set. This time I mixed it up with a sentiment from Words of Wisdom. The papers are from My Mind's Eye's Bluebell 6x6 collection.

 The Deconstructed Sketch Girls have lots more inspiration:

  • Amber Hight
  • Arielle Gordon
  • Donna Wardle 
  • Jen Shults 
  • Jessica Diedrich 
  • Judy Rozema, Guest Designer
  • Kadie Ensley
  • Lori Boyd
  • Pam Varnell 
  • Sheri Gilson

  • To play along, upload your sketch creation to a blog or online gallery and then link it up HERE.
