Where Flowers Bloom...

Have you had a chance to check out the Viva la Verve sketches for this month yet? If not, you really should. They're fabulous. I made this card using the first VLV sketch of the month, designed by Amber, and decided to use a Verve sentiment, from the set Hope Blooms, as my focal point. I framed it with a couple of Spellbinders diecuts: Labels 18, and Floral Doily Accents.

I made the Loopy flower (you can find the tutorial HERE) with felt and organza fabric, and the leaves (from the Verve Set Bloom and Grow), were diecut with one of the new Verve A Cut Above Dies: Elegant Leaves


That's it for today. Stop by tomorrow, for my interpretation of the VLV Sketch #2.

Happy Stamping my friends!
