Deconstructed Sketch #73

I needed some inspiration today, so I decided to try the Deconstructed Sketch #73.  I love just about any layout with a "flag."  Here's the sketch:

Deconstructed Sketch No. 73
I have to admit I haven't been creating much here lately, but I'm starting to get back to it.  As I've mentioned before, sometimes sketches are just the nudge we need to get started.
Just a note about the picture....I tried taking it outside today.  Not sure if that helped or not.  The entire white piece is evenly embossed.  I don't know why it looks "smooshed" at the bottom.  A photographer I am not!
Here's everything I used:
