DS56 - One Day at a Time

The day are just speeding past, and here we are at Thursday, which means a brand-new Deconstructed Sketch to play with. Do you look forward to these as much as I do? Here it is:

For my sample, I really wanted to start with one of Verve's new Plain Janes, so I picked out One Day. For papers, I reached for Echo Park's Note To Self 6x6 collection. There's something about the bold, graphic vibe of this collection that makes me practically giddy. I had to find a way to work in those adorable viewmasters, too!

The sentiment is stamped onto a Curvy Bookplate die cut and popped up over a Spellbinders Labels Fourteen shape. The orange accent flower was done with Verve's Loopy Blooms die set. The notebook edge on the blue ledger paper was done with My Favorite Things' Notebook Edge Die-namics die, and the gray scallop beneath that is a Cat's Pajamas Big Scallop CutUps. Along the bottom, I added some paper-pleated orange paper and adhered it with some Tim Holtz tiny staples.

    Great card! I love the colors and the "view master" background paper!

    Great colour combo, this would make a perfect "man" card, even the flower being so geometrical :-)
