The Deconstructed Sketch {have yourself a....}

I wanted to make sure to get this posted on time this week. I still need to blog last week's sketch card,but figured I'd start with the current one. It's DS135 and you can find it HERE.

Guy birthday cards are always in NEED in my house. This one (and three others, you'll see those soon enough) is being added to my stash. I love the Grout Grey, Gumdrop Green and Steel Blue combo.

 The designer papers are new from Studio Calico. I picked them up at I {heart}Papers.  It's called Printshop. Lots of fun patterns and colors. I really love the lighter, aqua color with the stars. It was a great fit for my  Tag Me die and the sentiment combination I created with the two RC stamp sets, Lots to Say and Bring on the Merry (yep, I pulled out a Holiday's NOT just for Christmas, I tell ya!). 

I had fun with a the arrows from the Crushin' set and used them to create a  pattern to my background. It also allowed me to use the fabulous Arrow Confetti Cut to tie it all together! The banner pieces tucked behind the sentiment tag are from the Tag Me die set. 

Check out the sketch. I really like working with that wonky panel, too. Adds an extra element of fun ! I'm linking my card up. Why don't you join me?!

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday!
