Viva la Verve



Andrea has a great Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge over on SCS's Verve forum! I intended to keep mine CAS, but I just couldn't resist adding the little roses and bow, since I thought the MS punched border and bling dictated a more fancy, Victorian feel to the card. The vintage cream panel is a 3 inch square punched on each side by the modern garland punch. The sentiment is an oval die cut layered over Verve's die cut from Ripe Avocado CS & sponged with Always Artichoke ink. The sentiment is stamped with Always Artichoke ink to keep with the monochromatic look. It's a gorgeous day with temps to go up to 70! I'm off work and intend to get outside, shop a little and just enjoy this warmth that is so unusual for February!

STAMPS: Kind Words (Verve)
PAPER: Distressed Dots (PTI), In Bloom (PTI), Vintage Cream (PTI), Ripe Avocado (PTI)

Loving all that green...happy sigh... :) Great use of the sketch. I'm two behind now! At least gone one of the skewed panel ones done and just have one left plus this one -phew! Love the MS border punch mat you created and the little roses are a lovely touch.
