Viva la Verve




Amber's Viva la Verve Challenge on the Verve forum on SCS was to use her sketch plus get inspiration from 1 of the 3 kids' rooms she showcased. I don't know why, but the animal print chair stood out in the 2nd picture and I went to my TJ Maxx DP bargain of Safari Chic Stack and soon had my card completed. I couldn't quite fit pink into the card (other than the subtle pink in the belly and ears of the monkey - lol), so opted to add green instead. Another week has passed by quickly...not looking forward to temps in the 90's this w/e! :-(

STAMPS: Hero Arts 'Playful Animals'
PAPER: Safari Chic Stack by DCWV, Dark Chocolate, Kiwi Kiss
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: Gold metal adhesive dots, Marvy scallop corner rounder, SU scallop border punch, Copics, Sponge, 2-step bird punch (SU)
