Hello and welcome to another Awesome week at The Deconstructed Sketch!! It's week 2 and I'm just as excited as last week!! Not only do I love getting to work with Jen's Sketches (aren't they SA-WEET?!), but I'm still having a "pinch me" moment that I get to be part of another amazing team! You've just GOT TO see what The Sketch Girls have in store for you TODAY!!

For my card today, I chose to use an image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I have been ooohing and ahhhing over Mo Manning's fantastic images, for quite some time now and just never had the courage to work with them. Not because the images aren't fabulous, (because each and every one of them are!) but because I didn't think I could pull off the coloring. I mean I've seen some pretty fantastic creations made with Mo's stamps and it intimidated me!
But I started trying my hand at coloring some immies up a few weeks ago and thought this little cutie would be perfect for one of Jen's fabulous Deconstructed Sketches!

The stamp I chose is one from Mo's Carnival collection, called Cotton Candy. Previously, she was offering this stamp as a fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation in both the UK and USA. And it's not the first time that Mo has generously offered up one of her immies for a fundraising cause. Such a sweet, sweet lady she is!!

I also used a hodge podge of papers for this card--Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon and Prima. The sentiment is a rub-on from Kaisercraft and the button is Amuse.

Please check out all of the amazing ways that THE SKETCH GIRLS have used Jen's sketch to provide a little inspiration for you and I hope you'll play along with us!!

Kadie this is awesome! I just love that cotton candy being so much bigger than the little girl. Every kid's dream right? You colors and coloring are fabulous. I think I recognize that green paper :). Did you see I actually played along with DS1? It was down to the wire but I got it done. Now I only have to make that card 3 more times. {Hugs}
