Viva la Verve in June!!

I have the honor of hosting this week's Viva la Verve sketch over in the Verve Forum at Splitcoaststampers.com, and let me tell you, I had so much fun making this card. I hope you're not intimidated by all the layers. They are so fun for combining decorative papers, or layering up an all white card with different shapes. And boy, did I use a plethora of different shapes and embellishments. Pure crafting heaven for me. ;)

I wanted to make one of Verve's new Plain Janes, called Grace, my focal point, and then thought it would be fun to add a sweet little tag using two of Verve's dies: Tiny Sweet Scallop and the small oval from the Charming Ovals set. I added the "thinking of you" sentiment from one of the recently released sets called Joyful Blooms. I thought the fonts and sentiments complimented each other beautifully.

I used a few more dies and fun embellishments too, like a Prima flower that was dusted with some Frosted lace stickles, some Spellbinders die frames, and a gorgeous Filigree Corner embellishment that I got from the fabulously vintage store called The Funky Junkie. Her link is on my sidebar under "shopping".

For the rest of the embellishments and tools, check out the supply list that I always include at the bottom of my post. And be sure to check out the VLV Sketch. If you participate, you have an opportunity to win $100 of Verve images!! Now how can you not join in on the fun when there's free stamps to be had!! Seriously!! ;)

Thanks for visiting and for all your support!! Crafters are some of the most kind people I know!!
Happy Stamping my friends!!

I gulped when I saw the sketch - poor little creative gene is shaking in his boots LOL! Your card is gorgeous so I'm off to roll in some Diva Dust to see what I can make of the sketch.
