Hi there and Happy Friday! I had a little time yesterday so I sat down to make a card using today's Viva la Verve Sketch over in the Verve Forums on Splitcoaststampers. Maureen is our Diva Hostess this week and came up with a great sketch!
I was in need of a Mother's Day card for my Mother-in-law, so I pulled out the new Verve set, Love Deepens and got to work. I stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate Ink, cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and before removing it from the die, sponged on some Rose Coral Fluid Chalk ink. I layered it on a Lacey Circle Nestie cut from Kraft cardstock. The larger Lacey Circle Nestie was also embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. I used two of my fave Verve dies, Sweet Scalloped Tag and Flutterby. I also stamped the tag with the Sweet Scallop Tag stamp in Dark Chocolate Ink. The sentiment layer was not part of the sketch.....I just strayed just a bit. Some chocolate twine, pearls and machine stitching finish the card. The papers are My Mind's Eye Lime Twist "Life of the Party."

I hope you all have a great weekend! We are busy all weekend with Mother's Day barbecues and birthday celebrations!!
