It's Your Day! Victorine Originals Stamp With Deconstrusted Sketch #23!!

Hope everyone has had a good Monday so far?! 
My Monday has been kinda bla...specially after a lazy weekend spent with the hubs having BOTH days!! I have a special card to share today, but before I get to that...I wanted to let everyone know that entered my Etsy giveaway, that I will be announcing the winner be sure to stay tuned for that!

The card that I'm sharing today features a super adorable stamp that I won in a challenge last month from "Victorine Originals" rubber stamps. I finally got it all mounted, inked up and colored in!

Before winning this stamp, I had never heard of Victorine's stamps before...but now that I had a chance to play with one...I think I'm in love!! Be sure to check out her shop HERE which has an assortment of gorgeous stamps in the online catalog and she even does custom stamps too!!

This was the first time I have tried using "Crackle Accents"...I put it around all the distressed edges and corners to make it look more vintage!! Not sure if I liked the way it turned out...maybe next time I will be brave enough to put it over the entire image like I originally planned to

When I received the stamp, she included a matching sentiment with it too, but I decided not to use it for this card because it was a Summer sentiment.

This is the first time I've had the chance to play along with the "Deconstructed Sketch" challenge. I thought the sketch they had this week worked perfectly with the shape of this image and what I had planned for the I turned the sketch on it's side.

Other views...

Kinda went with a simple look for the inside but I loved the way the little brads looked, so I included them on the message panel too!
