Deconstructed Sketch #19

Hello there! I'm here today with a card using this week's Deconstructed Sketch (#19). I love all the layers on this one!

For sketches that use alot of layers, I only focus on getting those layers together before I begin embellishing. I won't necessarily glue everything down, but I have all my layers cut and inked and distressed, or whatever! That way I ensure followed the sketch, hahah! Then the FUN begins;)

All the papers I used are from the "Rosy" line by MME. I love these feminine colors, so beautiful:)
Like I mentioned, before I did any stamping or embellishing, I picked out my papers, matted them, and sewed them. I then added all the scalloped edges.

I cut out my Rounded Scalloped Frame die and stamped the sentiment from Words of Wisdom on the inside piece of the die (the frame and rectangle inside come out in two pieces) and stamped the scalloped frame (from Making a Statement) in Calypso Coral ink. Once I had my sentiment panel figured out, I began glueing everything down. The flowers are from Making a Statement and cut out using my Loopy Blooms dies. The brads are from SU! and the twine is from PTI.

Well that's it from me today:) Make sure to swing by the Deconstructed blog to see Jen's sample, challenge details, and the rest of the DT's cards!
Thanks for stopping by today:)

This is adorable! I LOVE the papers and the stamps and the embellishments... it's perfect! (And it sounds like we work a lot of the same way... I've always got a huge stack of unglued paper all inked and doodled before I start pulling out embellishments... when I use them) LOVE THIS!
