Hey friends... quick post of a card that I made for the first Viva La Verve sketch for February.  Didn't manage to get anything done for the January Viva La Verve so I was determined that I would get back on track for February!  I used some My Mind's Eye papers and the Verve set Good Works that was released back in October.  This set is full of beautiful Bible verses and floral images.  I followed the sketch very closely, but instead of having three little word strips I used gold glitter hearts since I used the center panel in the sketch to stamp the verse Psalm 103:1.  I added some Old Paper distress ink to the edges of the banner, as well as to the papers to tone them down a bit.  I think I will add this to the Verve Diva Inspiration challenge as well as the colors are similar to the inspiration photo.  Initially I wasn't sure the glitter hearts would work, but I actually really like how it looks!  The hearts were die cut using the Verve Heart Quartet die.


Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, gold glitter; Paper: My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  Verve;  Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design, My Favorite Things, Verve; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Old Paper Distress ink

OH, Rosemary, what a beautiful card this is.
I love the hearts, BIG DOTS, and Bible verse (which is also a song).
Now I'm singing away...and I love it!
