Fabulous!!



I made this card today for Embellish Magazine's color and borders challenge that Verve is sponsoring this week. We were to make a card with the colors listed in the photo and incorporate borders. Here's what I came up with.


If you click on the photo, you'll be able to see the detail a bit better. I stamped one of the beautiful images from Verve's set Accent Notes in white onto the pink layer. The butterflies were punched from the same stamped paper. The sentiment and heart branch are from the set
Love's Flower. The frame I used is actually from Waltzingmouse. I love her Nestabilities stamp frames! They're gorgeous! The border punches and leaves are Martha Stewart, the ribbon and paper PTI, the flowers were all made with Punch Bunch punches and Kaisercraft Rhinestones. (I'll have a flower tutorial to share with you on Sunday). I also added some mini pearls, by Zva Creative, to the butterflies.

Be sure to join Verve for their Spring Fling release March 5 from 1-10 pm! Julee has some fun things planned for that day! You won't want to miss it!

That's it for today ya'll!! It's Friday! Woot!
Have a fantabulous weekend my friends!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
