Dream Big - DS58

After yesterday's clean, simple, all-white number, I just had to get my shabby on today. I've used the new Deconstructed Sketch, #58, along with what may be my favorite Verve set ever -- Words of Wisdom.

Here's our sketch this week:

Like it, love it, gotta have it ...

For the circle panel (which I moved to the left side to better accommodate the "dream big" sentiment), I used a glittery pink paper flower, along with two sweet little tags (a vintage metal rimmed tag from Stampin' Up and a jewelry tag, also SU, that I stamped with the "xoxo" sentiment from Verve's Tag Time set).

Elsewhere I've added the usual shabby details ... buttons, stitching, sanding, and distressing. The papers are from the new Carta Bella Beautiful Moments 6x6 pad. The die-cuts at the top and bottom are by My Favorite Things (Bracket Tab Die-namics at the top and the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics at the bottom).
