Smile - COF and Deconstructed Sketch
I hope you're having a wonderful Thursday!
I've got another fun card for you using this week's Deconstructed Sketch!
For my card, I've used the sunflower die from My Favorite things and paper from American Crafts, My Girl and tried to incorporate in all of the elements from this month's challenge in my Crafter's of Faith group! And I hope that, just as I always see a Deconstructed Sketch through my unique point of view, that Tami won't mind my unique take on her COF challenge too. :)
I got out some Maroon 5 on the ipod and set to work making a card to meet all of Tami's fun guidelines:
I have a crafting tool that I just had to have and have hardly used. Does that sound remotely familiar?! I think you all may have the same tool in your arsenal. I would like you to drag out your scoring tool. Scor-Pal mini, biggie, Martha mini, biggie or if you do not have one of those, I am sure that you may have a scoring blade on your paper cutter. SCORE!!! It would be fun to see how you all incorporate scoring onto your card. You know I am into 'use what'cha got', so if you do not have a scoring tool of any sort, please create without this element. Oh and I do not mean just a score to fold your cardbase in half! LOL
While it is a 'lovely' month February, let's create a card that is not Valentine's themed. That being said, it is the second part of this challenge. Let's not use Valentine theme, red, pink or white colors anywhere on our cards. That includes the paper you stamp your image on....*gasp*!
For our third element, how about we place both an image and a sentiment on the front of the card.
Okay, let's see:
-Scoring (I scored the center of my card and then placed the patterned paper inside)
-No pink or red or white. Well, oopsie...I forgot about the white part. I'm so sorry, Tami. I know it may seem like a fail in that area, but I actually started to use pink too and stopped myself from that part, so hopefully that counts for something. :) This card doesn't look anything Valentine's, so I got that part right. AND I didn't stamp any image on white...
-An image and sentiment on front (I hope my sunflower can count as my image. I just really wanted to try to do a card with no coloring for this fun sketch).
And that's my card! Thank you so much for popping by and thanks to Tami for such a wonderful COF challenge this month. I ♥ that Gal!! You can see all of the COF creations by clicking on the list of Ladies on my sidebar.
I hope you will check out the fabulous creations of the other Deconstructed Sketch Girls and play along with us this week! I just might have to use this sketch a second time! Have a great one!
