Viva la Verve Thank You


Hi there!  Happy Friday!  Can you believe that it is almost the end of February?  Sheesh.....the first two months of this year have flown by!  With a new month on the horizon, we're also starting a new month of Viva la Verve sketches over in the Verve Forum on Splitcoaststampers!  If you love a good sketch challenge and love the chance to win awesome prizes just for participating, check out all the details here.  We'd love to have you play along!

Our host this week is the sweet and wildly talented Amber.  She has an awesome sketch for us this week.  I did replace the upper star embellisment with some more of the pearl flourishes and I love the look!  I used the Verve set Sweet Treats (currently sold out) and the Classy Label and Embossed Oval Cut Above Dies.  I stamped the classy label shape from Sweet Treats with Charcoal Fluid Chalk Ink and cut it out with scissors.  I layered it on a Vintage Cream Classy Label die cut.  The sentiment was stamped with the same ink and was cut out with the Embossed Oval die.  I added some Prisma Glitter to the debossed portion of the die with a glue pen.  I added a border made with the Die-namics Dainty Doily Edge die from MFT.  Some ribbon, machine stitching and some pearl accents (flourish and stick pins) finish the card.


Thanks for stopping by!
