Viva la Verve & Birthday RAK




What a great sketch and wonderful livingrooms to inspire us on the Viva la Verve challenge by Amber today! I chose the green/white room with the splash of orange in the flower arrangement for my inspiration. Love the Devonshire Collection DP for their warm, earthy colors and used different sheets for the entire card except the white base. The flower is a die cut which I sponged the edges then curled slightly with my stylus. I flipped the tag on the sketch to the right side. It's been a gorgeous day here in VA and it was so great being off work to enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by...

STAMPS: Because of You (Verve)
PAPER: Devonshire Collection by KaiserCraft
INK: Dusty Durango, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink
ACCESSORIES: CB, EF, Corner punch (can't recall name), Terracotta tile ribbon (PTI), Finishing Touches copper brad (Flourishes), Blooming Beautiful II & Beautiful Dahlias dies by PTI, Gold cording, Sponge

Also wanted to share a lovely birthday RAK from Mary Marsh...a real doll for remembering my birthday! Check out the darling tulips created from the wing of SU's 2-step bird punch. Too cute! Thanks much!
