Viva la Verve



Teresa has a fabulous sketch for this week's Viva la Verve challenge on the Verve forum on SCS! I just love layering this grommet tag over a fancy labels 2 tag. The left border has ribbon, lace and a die cut border in Always Artichoke CS. The flowers are a new find at my visit to Michael's - loved the yarn look and am thinking this could probably be duplicated pretty easily. I need to go on a quest to find some glubers...a new adhesive product shown at CHA that would make it easier to assemble these flowers. The DP was embossed with the square lattice EF. I'm trying to get used to my Big Shot and the different layering. I like the better impressions it gives compared to the CB and the ease that the sandwiches roll through the machine.

PAPER: Sweet Pea DP (SU), Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Vintage Cream
INK: Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Recollections floral embellishments, Brads, Fancy Labels 2, Grommet Tags, Open scallop Die-namic by MFT, Ribbon, Lace, Square lattice EF.

Looks like you have been shopping lately LOL! Lots of new goodies to play with. You are right, those flowers would be a cinch to make. If all else fails, use a glue gun ;) Gorgeous card and loving the sentiment die you used - very elegant. Wonderful take on this week's sketch. Hope to see you at the party tonite :)
