The Deconstructed Sketch No. 172

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

For my card this week, I started with the new Joyous 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye. I just love the patterns and colors in this collection!

I created the rosette with the Tim Holtz die, the snowflake is a die by Memory Box, and I pulled out the awesome Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics from My Favorite Things... my new favorite die.

The wood veneers peeking out from under the embellished panel are just something that I picked up from Studio Calico awhile back... they have little embossed images or words on the other side. I just picked out a couple I knew I would never use, turned them over, and voila! a new embellishment was born! I also used some of my very favorite May Arts crochet trim, one of the last of my hoarded Maya Road Trinket Pins, and a leftover chipboard piece from the All is Bright collection by MME.

And there you have it, my card for this week:

Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see how they were inspired by this week's sketch:

  1. Gorgeous Christmas card, Cresta! Love the layers & texture!

  2. Cresta, you have the knack for adding the best embellies to your cards-you have "the eye" LOL. Lovely creation and such fun dimension!
