A CCEE Challenge and Viva la Verve Sketch

Hello everyone!! I hope you all are having a fantastic week. We're still enjoying Spring weather, so I'm in heaven!! Our CCEE Stampers Challenge this week is to surround our sentiment with flowers. Well, I put a flower next to my medallion. I hope the challenge police are okay with that. :)

To start, I used Amy's fabulous Viva la Verve Sketch found Here. There is very little stamping on this card. In fact, only the sentiment from the Verve set Hope Blooms. And I have to say, the sentiment is my favorite part of this card. I just LOVE the font combo. I think it fits with a variety of card styles. I also used 3 different A Cut Above dies by Verve: Floral Circles, Elegant Leaves, and Flutterby.

The gorgeous dp I used is called Reflections by Prima, and you can get it, along with a large variety of other stamping goodies, at Stamper's Dream (One of my favorite on-line stores to shop at).

I also used a die from Spellbinder's Patrisian Motifs set, and an EK Success Border Punch. That's about it for today's card. Now, head on over to the CCEE Stampers Blog to see all the wonderfully creative cards the other gals have to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!

Tosh - your work is stunning as usual. You have a way of raising the bar with every creation. What a cute use of twine for the butterfly's antennae. {Hugs}
