Miss You All the Time

I played along with the Deconstructed sketch challenge #103 this week after finding this fun sketch! I love the big banner in the center. As usual, I tweaked the sketch and moved the twine a bit lower so I could weave it through the sentiment tag.

I dug into my pile of scraps and pulled out these cardstock colors that I thought looked good together and assembled them on a kraft card stock base. I made 2 more cards from these leftover scraps that I'll share another time.

Wishing you all a great weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by!

The pinks go very good with the kraft. I really like the twine moved down to go through your die piece. Your extra little touches like the hearts and the tiny strip of brown along the your punched piece really add to the overall look of this very nice card. It's all ready way to humid to do anything here. I hope you are not getting this humid weather also. Enjoy your day.

Great sketch. Love the pink and rose with Kraft. Plus, that is such a sweet sentiment. Fab card, Carol.

Great job Carol! I'm with Donna... the pinks are wonderful with the kraft. I like your tweak to design. The twine is perfectly placed for your design and the button/twine bow combo is a nice swap for the bow too. I think I need to add that EF to my collection too!
