Live the life you've imagined

Hello everyone. I have a Viva la Verve Sketch challenge card to share with you today. This week our sketch is designed by the sweet and talented Moe. And it just happens to be her birthday on the 17th, so if your so inclined, click on her name above and give her some birthday love!!

For my card today, I used two favorite Verve sets of mine: Words of Wisdom, and Tag Time. I think the styles of both marry beautifully. And Verve has a Tagged Rectangle die designed for the tags, so it makes it extra easy to put together.

You may have noticed I've been stuck in the Shabby Chic style lately. I just can't stop myself from distressing the paper!! :) Well, I've discovered a store that fits beautifully with this style. It's called The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and Linda (the owner), is just the sweetest. The corrugated heart, lace and little roses are all from her store, as well as the Jute Mesh Burlap. So sweet!! I added some Stampendous Champagne Glass glitter to the edges of the heart, and some Gesso to all the dp.

The rest is pretty self explanatory. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous weekend. My husband is celebrating his 51st birthday on St. Patty's Day, and my son comes home from college tonight just in time. So I'm definitely looking forward to this weekend!!

Happy Stamping my friends!!
