thank you...

Hello!!  Popping in with a card I made using the Viva La Verve week 4 sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown.  I think I will pop this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge... anything goes, as well.


Used two Verve sets for this card:  Lean on Me and Better Together.  The pointed flower die was used, as well.  To create the bottom portion of the sketch I used the sort of grungy/stripy image from the Better Together set and stamped that in Pacific Point.  The flower was die cut from some BasicGrey Highline paper that is somewhat similar to Crushed Curry and then stamped using Rich Cocoa ink.  Sequins were added to the center of the flower.  The tag and banners are also Verve dies: Tagged Rectangle and Pennant Trim.  Finished off the card with some enamel dots and a little twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  TPT white, SU! Old Olive; Stamps:  Verve:  Lean on Me and Better Together; Inks:  SU! Pacific Point and Memento Rich Cocoa; Dies:  Verve; Twine:  Hemptique, My Minds Eye enamel dots; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh clear (4mm) and Lawn Fawn

Fabulous combination of those challenges, Rosemary! I was just trying to remember who made that pennant die & Verve is the one company I didn't check. You always inspire me, my friend!
