Viva la Verve.....Congrats!


Hi there and Happy Saturday!!  It's rainy and COLD here in California, though maybe not COLD like many of you experience in your parts of the country, but COLD by my standards!  It's days like these that make me happy to sit in my cozy house and get crafty!

Today's card uses this week's Viva la Verve sketch from my wildly talented friend and fellow Diva, Andrea Ewen.  I had to use my new My Mind's Eye Stella And Rose Hazel papers, they're so awesome!  I also used my FAVE Verve set, To the Moon.  I cannot put this set down!  I hadn't yet inked up the adorable monkey so I got him inky today.  He was colored with Copics, cut out and popped up for dimension.  The frame by stamping the frame inage from the set and cutting it out with two different sized Square Nestabilities.  I used a button and some Divine Twine and sort of framed the image.  Some machine stitching, a sentiment and some adhesive gems finish the card.


You can find all the Viva La Verve details here.  And don't forget to check out the Verve Store for some Sweet Deals!!  These sets will be on sale through the end of the February!  You don't want to miss out!

This is darling, Jackie. That little monkey is so cute and you colored him so nicely. The shading is perfect. The patterned papers are so warm and inviting. The button and twine were the perfect finishing touch. I am enjoying the rain here in CA too!
