Viva la Verve

How ironic that's it's a super gloomy day with more snow in the forecast this afternoon and I'm creating a card with a sentiment talking of brighter days ahead - lol!  Charmaine has a really CAS design for the Viva la Verve week 5 challenge in the Verve forum on SCS.  One layer cards are a REAL challenge for me, but have to say, I was really happy with the end result of this card.  I used Tim Holtz' "rays" EF for the BG and added Lil Inker Designs' rainbow and clouds die cuts.  I especially love the little stitching details on the clouds!  I paper pieced the sentiment to add a little "oomph" to it.  Thanks for stopping to get some groceries and fill up the van with gas before heading out to work.

STAMPS: Brighter Days by Verve.

Well done!! Love the pop of colour against all that shie and what a fun EF to use for the top of the card. WIll have to put my thinking cap on for this one.
