Just Because {VLVMar2011} Week 3


Hi there!  I've been busy working on my last Dirty Dozen projects the past couple days but took a little break to make a card for this week's Viva la Verve sketch.  Maureen is our host this week and she came up with a fabulous sketch!

I pulled out one of my favorite Verve sets, Great Friend.  I LOVE paper pieceing these flowers.  All of the papers are MME Stella and Rose Hattie.  The leaves are from Autumn Splendor and were paper pieced.  I am addicted to Divine Twine if you hadn't noticed already and had to use it in place of the ribbon in the sketch.  Some machine stitching, scallops and a sentiment flag finish the card.


You can find all the Viva la Verve details here.  We'd love to have you play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
