Simply Chartreuse & Raspberry Fizz are the focal colors using the new Verve flower from the Hope Blooms set and the leaves with matching die from the Bloom & Grow set - 2 must have sets with so many options for design! I cut slits around each flower layer and roughed up the petals so they would be more dimensional...so fun! Shannon has a challenging sketch for the Viva la Verve challenge on the SCS forum. Fortunately, she has a visual tutorial which is very helpful to know how to achieve the starburst effect. It turned out to be an easier task than I expected! This card is also being entered into the CCEE Stampers challenge to use pleated ribbon or pleated paper. I've had this wide pleated ribbon and never used it, so this was a perfect opportunity!
