Viva la Verve!

Well, I figured it was about time I sat down and wrote another installment for my blog. I now have a few things to show ya'll, so I thought I'd better get back into the blogging routine and start "puttin' out". I'm fresh out of drama-calama to share (that's a good thing, right?), so I'll get right down to business.

I made this card for the Viva la Verve challenge for May (Week 2). I really liked the layout and I seem to have issues sometimes using a tag on a card, so this was a good one for me to spread my wings on (har-har).

I grabbed for a sentiment set that had one I could punch out a circle with and the Fabulous You fit perfectly. The tag is die-cut and stamped using the Sweet Scallop Tag Die and matching stamp set from Verve. I love matchy-matchy. Then I needed a little embellishment for the bottom corner of the circle, so I used the Flutterby butterfly die also from Verve. Taking the sketch so literally really turned out cute! That Moe (the Verve Diva who came up with the sketch) is sketchalicious!

Ya'll need to be sure and check out all the Viva la Verve sketches for May (there will be one more for a total of five for May) and make something Vervey (Verve stamps not required) for a chance to win some swag from Verve! The details on how to play are in each week's Verve forum on Splitcoast HERE. Have fun!!

Ok, well Eric and I are going to go watch a movie I rented...Inception. I hope it's a good one!
