Remember (SC183)

Today's Sketch Challenge had four overlapping panels with the main image on top in panel #4. I had a bit of trouble deciding what image to use there. I like to stay true to the sketch, keeping rectangles as rectangles, etc., and I really don't like to flip the sketches either. This layout was meant to be horizontal with the fold at the top. I finally decided to go with the combination of "Define Your Life" and "Defining Alphabet". It fits, and I think this would make a lovely birthday card. We should all reflect on days gone by and realize how blessed we are, especially on our birthdays.

The base card is Pretty In Pink. I embossed the white layer, added the two designer paper layers, and sort of treated them as all one piece. I added the punched pieces and then the brads. With those pieces on, it looked like there was too much on the right, so I added the taffeta ribbon on the left to balance it out. I sponged the main panel and punched it with the Ticket Corner Punch, originally intending to add brads in each corner; however, I thought the two punched strips with those two brads were enough. I popped up the main panel with foam dots.
