Viva la Verve & F4A
Charmaine has a fabulous sketch for the Viva la Verve challenge on the Verve forum on SCS! This card is also for the Free 4 All Challenge on SCS - must have something pink, something purple and a heart. In the process of hunting for a missing EF in my less than tidy work space, I came across this white panel with square lattice embossing already done...quick step! I then used images from 3 different Verve sets to complete the card (can ya tell I love Verve?!). BTW, Julee has a new release party this evening on the Verve forum...can't wait to see all the new sets, because the divas have been rockin' out some really great samples! Those enablers! Back to my card...the flowers were colored with Copics (R81, BV02, BV04), cut out and popped with foam dots. I added Diamond stickles to the centers and then forgot it wasn't dry and smeared it everywhere when I put the card on the base. Tip to self: PUT THE STICKLES ON LAST! The heart is there...dangling in the lower left corner. :-) Small, but it's there. I need lots of birthday cards in the next month, so this will add to my stash.
STAMPS: Always on My Mind (dangling heart), Big Wish (sentiment), Artful Elegance (flourish behind sentiment & border design).
