Hi there and Happy Friday! I'm happy it's almost the weekend! We don't have many plans this weekend, just hanging out at the in-laws tomorrow and football on Sunday! Oh, and maybe I'll sneak in a couple cards!
I sat down this morning to make a card for today's Viva la Verve sketch! Maureen is our host this week and she has a fantastic sketch for you to play with! I tweaked it just a bit by making my card a square, but I pretty much stuck to the original sketch!
I pulled out Great Friend (one of my fave Verve sets and it's ON SALE) because it had been awhile since I'd used it. The flowers were paper pieced. I cut out each layer of flower and popped it up on foam tape for dimension. Each flower was finished with a decorative brad. The sentiment was cut out with an oval tab die from MFT. The ribbon is some gorgeous seam binding from The Cat's Pajamas. A little machine stitching finishes the card.
Here is the sketch:
We'd love to have you play along! If you complete all the sketches for October, you'll be entered to win a Verve gift certificate! You can see all the challenge details here!
Thanks for stopping by!
