Viva la Verve

***Just a friendly reminder to all my blog friends...Join in on the fun on the For Your Inspiration just may win a Lovely Lotus award!***

Jackie has a great sketch for the Viva la Verve Challenge on the Verve forum! I went guessed it...more MME papers...this time the Stella & Rose Gertie pad. I love this yellow gingham print and sadly, I almost covered up the blue/yellow print. I used the Lil Inker's sentiment flag die and cut 3 flags from white CS then layered it and hand cut Enchanted Evening CS by PTI. This card uses 3 different Verve sets: World's Best (1st half of sentiment), Because of You (2nd half of sentiment), Everlasting Life (flower). The flower was paper-pieced and the stem/leaves were colored with Copics. The border is a deep punch by Martha called Garden Gate. I started to stop at this point, but the Enchanted Evening satin ribbon was calling out, so I added a bow with a Tim Holtz button accent. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments!
