Hi there!! I hope you all had a nice weekend! We had my in-laws over for dinner on Saturday and spent all day Sunday at home in our pj's just catching up on laundry, stamping, and just hangin' out. A great weekend!
I made some time on Sunday to stamp and couldn't wait to make a card for this week's Viva La Verve sketch. Charmaine is our host this week and she came up with a gorgeous sketch! I needed a card for a friend who is going through a rough time right now and decided on Verve's Amazing Wishes to make her card. I paired Amazing Wishes with some Stella and Rose Hazel papers. I am so loving the new My Mind's Eye papers.
I stamped the large and small flower from Amazing Wishes on two of the patterns and cut them out. I put a Making Memories decorative brad in the center of the large flower. I used a Labels 14 to cut out sentiment. The flower border was done with a new EK Success Abstract Flower border punch. In place of ribbon in the sketch I used some cream twine that I recently picked up from The Cat's Pajamas. Between this twine and my go to Divine Twine, I am in heaven. A rounded corner, some machine stitching and an adhesive pearl flourish and I called it done! LOVE how this turned out!
