I decided to make an inspirational card for someone very special to me who is feeling a little overwhelmed this week. I fell in love with the Deconstructed Sketch #39 when I saw Amy Sheffer's beautiful card, so I based my layout on it.
I recolored my MTME Blue Skies paper and went to work stamping and assembling. I cut my round panel with the Large Spellbinders Nestability Circle and sponged So Saffron prior to stamping my MTME Stay Strong sentiment and floral accents and layering on a doily.
My little bird came from the MTME A Little Birdie cut file. I stitched a button to it using some tangerine jewelry twine and added a couple of big loops. I cut my scalloped layer using the MTME Border Builders Elegance cut file, layered another piece of patterned paper and added ribbon and a prima. Truly a very simple card when you break it down. I just hope it inspires my sweet recipient ♥
Be sure to swing by my CTD sisters' blogs for a great variety of crafty inspiration! They whipped up some doozies!!

Danielle stayed the night at my house and was soooo gracious. She brought me a framed print of one of her AMAZING photos that I mentioned was my favorite (Love In A Mist) :] Isn't she SWEET?! I couldn't believe it! Check it out:
