New Verve!



COULD NOT BELIEVE IT! The Verve release party was this past Friday night and I got my new stamps TODAY! Now THAT is fast shipping! The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for this week was a doozy! I wasn't going to play until I saw the trio of stars image and the light bulb went off. :-) I placed a round Nestie on the vellum as a guide and stamped the image around the circle. I then punched some gingham stars and popped them with dimensionals. It's hard to see, but I stitched the four BG squares together. Time for some fresh squash and corn for supper...gotta go for now.

STAMPS: American Hero (Verve)
PAPER: Blue Awning by K&Co; Winter Song (gingham print) by S.E.I., Vellum
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Brads (BasicGrey), Small star punch (SU), Silver star stickers, Poppy satin ribbon (PTI)

This is a stunning card...well done! Love the red ribbons and the metal stars. Glad you played along. 'Cullen' is a very popular name here in N.Ireland - no doubt you have relations over here.
