Hang Ten, Dude!




This is the 4th and last Viva la Verve Challenge in the Verve forum on SCS. Amber gave us a great sketch and several living rooms to inspire us. I chose the first one with turquoise and orange colors in the decor. The colors fit with some of the new surfing images Julee recently released in the Verve store. The surfboards were were cut out and popped with dimensionals. The card is pretty much self-explanatory...hope you think this card is gnarlacious (that's surfing slang for awesome - lol).

STAMPS: Happy Days & Relax by Verve
PAPER: Rainbow Sherbet DP (SU), Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie
INK: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie
ACCESSORIES: Twine, Corner notch punch (Marvy), CB, Swirls EF
