Deconstructed Sketch


Good Thursday morning friends!  We were greeted with another inch of snow on the ground when I woke up.  The positive thing about winter is having more stamping time because there are no outside chores on the to-do list. :-)  I'm a big fan of the weekly Deconstructed Sketch Challenge every Thursday and actually created this card late last night after getting off work.  Love that I can get an early peek at the sketch on FB! So...instead of actual circles, I went with a grouping of rolled roses instead!  Very little stamping this time...only a quick little sentiment flag.

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: With Love (Verve), Sentiment Flags by Lil Inker Designs
PAPER: The Sweetest Thing "Honey" pad by MME, White (PTI)
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: MFT Die-Namics: Mini rolled roses, mini hybrid heirloom rose, and leaf filled flourish; Satin ribbon; Bow-Easy.

I recently read that a must-have accessory is humor!  Henry Ward Beecher says it like this..."A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.  It's jolted by every pebble on the road."  William Thackeray once said "Good humor is one of the best articles of dress one can wear in society".  Even the Bible has advice for us when it comes to humor: "A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance" Proverbs 15:13.  So, my blog post today is ending with a smile for you! :-)
