Deconstructing Sketch #67 - Happy Bee Day!

I have officially named this card "My Most Busiest EVER card"... Ok, probably not the busiest, but pretty close up there! I think it's the really cool Prima paper that does it.

I started this week's Deconstructing Sketch Challenge looking at Jen's fabulous sketch and thinking to myself... What the world am I going to put on that tag? Sentiment or image? What to do...What to do!!

As you can see I decided to go with option number 2 and chose this little cutie image from Tiddly Inks {surprise,surprise} called "Happy Be Day".  The very first thing I did was stamp out the tag using my tag stamp from Hero Arts. Then choosing some of the funky papers from the Doodle Deux 6x6 paper pad that I had decided I wanted to use on the card and following the sketch, I put it all together.  I sewed...yes, again...I sewed around the edges and also around the edges of the layered tag. Added the "Happy Bee Day" sentiment, the flower from Prima and the ribbon and it was all done!

We have some really exciting news for you as well today and that is that our lovely past guest artist Tracey Pickersgill has said yes to becoming a full time Deconstructing Sketch Girl!!! Ya!! We all love Tracey and all think she is just so sweet and amazing!! So give her a big welcome!!
