VLV February Week 4 ~ You make me smile


Andrea has provided a fantastic sketch over in the Viva la Verve Forum on Splitcoaststampers. Check it out HERE. There are prizes involved too, so you might want to check it out!! I used sentiments from the Love Notes (Verve) set for my card today, and framed the first with the Classy Label Die (Verve), and Labels 10 (Spellbinders). The flowers were made with Stampin' UP! dies Birds and Blooms, along with some Punch Bunch punches. The leaves were made with Sizzlits Little Leaves (SU!), and the little tag was punched out with the Martha Stewart tag punch. I also added some May Arts Plaid ribbon and Burlap String, along with a PTI button. Everything was ink distressed with Brushed Corduroy Ranger Distress Ink, and the dp is from Graphic 45's Curtain Call.

Here's the sketch.

That's about it for my card. Don't forget to check out the Viva la Verve Forum.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
