I recently downloaded a font called Peony from the DaFont site. It is a free font and is really fun. Each letter is a different, seamless design.
Using my Silhouette, my Amy Chomas pen holder, and a black pen , I typed the letter B across the middle of the card front, which made the vine design. I then added washi tape and a stamped embossed panel. This card was fast and has a good amount of white space for those of you who want to keep things simple!

The ginko pattern is the letter M from DaFont as well. After drawing it with my silhouette I filled the image in with a black pen then added some machine stitching and thin black washi tape. The flower was made using patterned paper and the Sizzix Flower 6 die. I cut the sentiment out of white cardstock ,colored it with red pigment ink, and then embossed it.

What other fun fonts do you use? Let me know!
You get 2 Deconstructed challenge cards this time because I didn’t get 112 done until after the deadline. I’ll start with 113.
I came up with a technique I hadn’t thought of before. I decided to place a row of pearls at the bottom of the card and I wanted them evenly spaced. Most of the time I just eyeball it but the more pearls there are to be placed, the more likely that they will go wonky. I laid my row of pearls (still on their backing) where I wanted them on the card and then placed a sticky note directly below them. I then made little tick marks to show where each pearl was to be placed and then put the pearls on the card. The sticky note ensured that not only were the pearls evenly spaced but that they were all the same height. Wish I had have thought of that a long time ago! Here is the picture with the sticky note in place:
All of the papers are from American Crafts “Color Crush” 6×6 pad.
I white embossed both the turquoise hexagon and the sentiment and then used an embossing folder to add dimension to the sentiment hexagon.

This is DS112. Love the colors of the striped paper! All of these papers were from the My MInd’s Eye 6×6 pad called “Memorable”. I really liked this pad because the papers are two-sided. There are lots more color options that way.
Sentiment: unknown; leaf die cut: Sizzix Little Leaf; Stickles
