Take a Bow with Deconstructed Sketches

It's been awhile since I posted a project, but I have been working on them.  I have been doing the weekly HeArt Journaling with The Greeting Farm, but just have not shared them here....perhaps I will get busy and start adding those.  But for now, I have a card to share with you.   

Christmas already....yep, I decided to get a little bit of a head start this year.  For my card I used the sketch at Deconstructing Sketches.  At first the triangle shape intimidated me, but I really like how it turned out.

The image is Take a Bow from Tiddly Inks ~ I love Christy's images ~ they are just so cute and fun to color.  The challenge over at Tiddly Inks is to use paint so I used some shimmerz paint on the flowers.  The papers are from the Tinsel and Twigs Collection from The Girls Paperie ~ these are some of my favorite holiday papers and am kicking myself for not buying more of them at the time.  The lace trim and ribbon were pulled out of my vintage trim collection.  

Looking forward to Monday...DI Season begins for the Elementary level!  I am managing two teams there....Hold It (Structural challenge) and Built to Last (Rising Stars).  I am excited to see what the kids have prepared for their tryouts.  The Middle School has to wait until November, but that will be here before we know it.  There I am managing Coming Attractions (Fine Arts challenge).  I am really excited to be starting another DI season and can't wait to see how the kids decide to solve their challenges.

Well, the weather here is beautiful, so I am off to enjoy it for a bit with the kids.

Have a great day!
