Here's a simple, graphic design based on the current Deconstructed Sketch. I used the Aim High set from Avery Elle along with some cardstock scraps to put this one together.

Shoot card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
I started out with a black and white graphic patterned panel to cover my pale gray card base.  I die cut a circle from shiny gold cardstock and attached that to the top of the panel.  Then I mixed and matched some black, gray, and light gray scraps until I came up with an arrangement I liked.  The "shoot" sentiment was stamped in white pigment ink on the dark gray strip, then heat embossed with a pearly white embossing powder.  It looks great IRL!  The final touch was a trio of yellow sequins arranged around the round panel.  I love the little bits of sparkle against the rest of the card's neutral color palette.
