Viva la Verve Inspired

Amber has some wonderful sketches and inspirations over at the Viva la Verve forum found HERE. I used this past Friday's as a starting point for this card, and the third photo as the inspiration. I LOVE the cross from Verve's set Everlasting Life. It's so beautiful pieced.

This card is pretty straight forward. No special techniques. I just followed the sketch, did a bit of sewing and added some glitter and buttons. Woila...easy.

Thank you so very much for stopping by. I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
Happy Stamping my friends!!

You are just the best at giving paper that rich aged look. I honestly came to your blog the other day just to try and figure it out so I could do it myself! Beautiful card Tosh!
