Viva la Verve Week #3

As parents, have you ever used the phrase "Do as I say, not as I do"? Well I have to use that phrase for this card. *grin* I wanted to participate in this week's Viva la Verve challenge, and I believe I got the sketch down perfect. However, I forgot about the challenge part which is a theme: Ornaments & Winter Decor ...yeah...missed that part. (hanging head in shame)...oh well...hopefully I get points for getting the sketch right.

For today's card, I used images from one of Verve's newest releases called Amazing Wishes. It has two sweet flowers and a charming tag, along with a wonderful variety of sentiments. I stamped the flower onto two different dp patterns, cut them out, and used a stylus on the back to give it a bit of depth. The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch from dp also. All the dp is from Graphic 45's "Once Upon a Springtime Collection". I framed the sentiment with Spellbinders' Labels 1 die.

Lastly, I added some sweet little pearls under the sentiment and some fun stitching. That about sums it up.

Please check out the Viva la Verve challenge HERE. And remember to include the theme Ornaments & Winter Decor. Just a little heads up. :)

Tosh, this is GORGEOUS! And I still think you stayed within the theme. My mother decorates everything in "peaches 'n cream" for Christmas, so this card would totally be inspired by her ornaments! :)

Well, missing theme or not, it's one G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S card. So soft and pretty!
