Accessorize - DS59

 Are you ready for a new Deconstructed Sketch? Did this past week fly by for you, too?

 Since it's the first week of the month, we have a sponsor,  Country Bumpkin StampsLorie, the designer of Country Bumpkin Stamps, is offering FOUR stamp sets to one lucky challenge participant! To be eligible, just create a project using the sketch (below), post it online, and then link it back to Jen's sketch challenge post by next Wednesday night at 8pm CST. Good luck! 

 Here's what we're playing with:

I chose to work with the super adorableGracee Goose. She's colored with Copics, trimmed out, and placed onto a card made from Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer papers. 

 Gracee reminds me of Esmerelda, a large wooden goose my mother had when I was growing up (she still has it, I think). Through some mishap or another, Esmerelda's head once broke off. We glued her back together and tied a bow around her neck to cover the break. Accessorize!

    This is seriously amazing Amy. I love the soft way you colored that goose and the rest of the card is just gorgeous. I love that pop of contrast with the brown and red. So pretty!

    Lovely, cute and colourful card Amy. The buttons are a nice touch, very unusual too.

    She brings a smile and like how the sentiment is stitched on, neat threading of the buttons!
