DS7~Hello Friend!

It's a Deconstructed Sketch Vacation Blog Hop! Jen is on vacation this week so she thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit this week and have a blog hop. And you know what a blog hop means... that's right PRIZES!! For this blog hop there will be TWO prizes, one for one very lucky commenter and one for one 
very lucky randomly drawn participant in the sketch challenge. If you're joining me from Anna Maria's blog, you're on the right track. If not, and you want to see all the sketch cards and comment for your chance to win, Start out at Arielle's Blog and hop through the list!


So what do you need to do? Well, hop around to all the design team blogs and leave a comment. The list is below so you can hop in your own order. Very easy! Second, take a look at the sketch and make a project using the sketch as creative inspiration, post it online (blog or gallery) and link it back to the InLinkz on Jen's blog. Again, very easy!! On June 27th, 2011 Jen will announce the winner of the comment prize on her blog. The winner of the sketch participation prize will be announced on June 30th along with the next sketch. So what are the prizes? Well Jen has kept that a secret so you will need to take a trip to her blog to find out what the prizes will be! But they are sure to be BIG! 



Here's our awesome sketch, this week!

And here's my sample using a couple goodies from Verve!


I went shabby this week, because my past few cards have been clean and cutesy, I was ready to spend oodles of time on a pretty shabby card! The papers are all by Prima, because really...who do YOU think of when you think "shabby"? :)


The leaves are from Bloom and Grow and the sentiment is from Hope Blooms. I stamped the leaves on some patterned papers and then cut them out with the Elegant Leaves die. Then I cut out six flowers with the smallest shape from the Floral Circles dies and then crumpled them up and shaped them. I added a pearl to the centers and attached the flowers to the leaves with mini glue dots. I also added lots of Glimmer Mist to the whole card, it's lovely IRL:)

Now check out the next girl in line, ANGELA!!
