Viva la Verve--July Week 4
Well, it seems like I just started on this card, but apparently it took me a while to get it together. It's my Viva la Verve card from last Friday (July Week 4). I LOVED the sketch that Laurie came up with and it did sit on my desk for a couple of days, and then it took me a couple more days to actually make the card! I did a little here and a little there in between taking the fam to see Harry Potter, grocery shopping, getting the A/C fixed and watching America's Got Talent (GO Landau!). I need to work on getting my priorities straight, right?
Anyway, I mentioned I LOVE this sketch, and I can see myself using it again for other upcoming projects (maybe a card kit?). HERE'S the SCS thread about this sketch and HERE'S today's NEW sketch (that I plan to start this afternoon...and finish hopefully BEFORE next Friday--LOL!)
Sooooo, can you tell I used a Thanksgiving stamp from the Bountiful Harvest set that came out last year? I just love that sentiment and it fit perfectly in the spot I had desingated in my head for it with this sketch. The flourishes are from the set, Blue Skies which I thought really complemented the SU Sizzix embossing folder I used for the Ripe Avacado green.
The Jotted Heart die from Verve played nicely with some Die-namics from MFT for the rolled roses, not to mention the Seam Binding Ribbon from TCP--all so puurrty! It had been a while since I used those roses and I will continue to do so as pretty as the result is! So much cheaper than buying them and Very Verve-alicious!
SUSIE Q-TIP: The metal button in the center of the bow is actually a brad. I just hammered the legs down to make it flat (you could also cut them off) and hot glued it in place after the bow was tied.
