A New Deconstructed Sketch

Goodness, my blog has been neglected this week! I am directing three musicals right now, and the first one opens in two weeks, so every waking moment has been spent working on that. But to keep my sanity, I have to keep stamping :)
Today I am sharing a creation with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch 87:
For my card I chose one of Flourishes' sentiment sets, In and Out You, available from i {heart} papers
My banners are cut from Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments Collection kit, also at ihp. I stamped my sentiments in Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray, and then cut with Spellbinders Labels Four Small. I sponged the outside of the frame with So Saffron ink. The little bird sticker is from the Carta Bella kit. 

The Ivory Sheer Box Pleats ribbon and Kaiser Latte pearls are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The Deconstructed Sketch girls have some terrific samples to show, so be sure to have a visit at their blogs too!
