much happiness...

Hello!!  Hope your week is going well!  Have a little card that I made that works for several different Verve challenges:  Viva La Verve (week one sketch), Diva Dare (Celebrate Good Times) and Verve Inspiration Challenge (Sequin Stunner).  Also popping this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  summer... summer is full of flowers!


A week ago I purchased the My Mind's Eye Market Street Ashbury Heights 6x6 pad and had been wanting to use it.  Finally got a chance today.  I used two different Verve sets for my card:  Surely Goodness and Brighter Days.  Lots of die cutting on this one, too.  I love working with patterned papers, but sometimes it can be a problem when you don't have an ink that is a fairly good match for at least one of the colors in the papers used.   After trying a shade of red ink I thought would work and discovering it clashed a bit too much I was able to find a shade of teal ink that worked much better.   After layering everything up on my card base I finished things off with a sequined center to my flower and a scattering of  clear sequins around my card. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft, black and white; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  Verve; Dies:  Spellbinders plain rectangles and long plain rectangles; Verve:  Flag It dies & Goodness Flower Dies; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh 4mm, 6mm & 8mm sparkling clear sequins
