Deconstructed Sketch Challenge 94 and a Circle Card

Been back in my craft studio this week doing a little bit of DT designing, class designing and playing along with some challenges.  So I thought I would share a little of what I have been doing!

First up I played along with The Deconstructed Sketch.  I absolutely love the variety of sketches the very clever and talented Jen and the DT come up with.  Here is DS94:

And here is the card I created!

The papers were from one of my favourite ranges from MME Stella and Rose.  I love the 6x6 paper pads as the patterns a miniaturised making them perfect for cards.  
I wanted to add some dimension and bold elements to the card so I chose to use some thick twine and an oversized button with the ribbon.  I also added the striped strip under the sentiment.

The Happy Birthday sentiment was from WOW and the pearls were from Flourish with a Bling.  Of course I had to add some distressing and inking too!

We have quite a few male birthdays in the family and amongst friends in March and April so using this sketch really helped to kick start the creative process.

I also absolutely love round cards so I made a round card for a 60th Anniversary that I had been asked to make using one of my favourite Mojo Monday sketches.

Here is what I made:

The papers were from MME and part of the Collectable collection.  I also added a Studio Calico spotted piece to the card.  This card used the last of my pre cut scallop circle cards which I bought from Archiver's in Ohio USA when I worked there. I just love them and they no longer make them so I have invested in some Grand Nestablilities dies and cant wait to start creating some more circular cards soon.

The flowers were MFT die-namics mini rolled roses.  They are so much fun to make and just the perfect size for card making.

I also added an MFT oval doily to the card.  Hand cut the fishtail banners, added Quik Cutz numbers and Adorn It lettering.  I also added some sparkle with a Gel Pen.

Thanks for stopping by, would love to hear from you so feel free to comment!



  1. As usual Leanne, beautiful cards! I love the round one the best although they are both gorgeous. I'm going to try and play Mojo Monday this weekend too, as I will finally get some time over the break to craft :-) Hope you have a lovely Easter!

    1. Thanks Kirsten! I will be sure to watch for your Mojo Card. Enjoy the break and happy crafting!
