Deconstructing Sketch #66 - Happy Birthday!

Ok... So, I think I have finally caught up on my sleep after my holiday, now I just have to start catching up on everything else... I can hear my ironing yelling out to me as I type. LOL! We had such a fantastic time and I think both Andy and I are glad we took this week off work as well so we can get back into the swing of things... But first things first. One of the things on my long list that unfortunately includes the ironing was to do some fun stuff. This week's Deconstructing Sketch!! 

My card...

I can honestly say that when I sat down to colour this gorgeous little image from Tiddly Inks called "Daddy's Girl", which you can find HERE in the Tiddly Inks Store. I realized how much I missed colouring... I really enjoyed the challenge of shading and I actually missed doing it... Sometimes a break is a good thing huh?!

I started this card by printing out the image and then colouring it in with my Prismacolor pencils. Seeing that the image that I picked to use doesn't exactly fit the amazing sketch Jen created for this week's challenge I flipped it. Then using one of my favourite 6x6 paper pads from MME from the Follow Your Heart collection called "Be Amazing" I came up with the above card.

This week's sketch..

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie's "Everyday Sentiments"

If you'd like to join us this week all you need to do is create a project using the above sketch as inspiration. There are no specific image requirements for this challenge. Upload your project to your blog or to an online gallery and link it back to Jen's Blog using the Inlinkz.
