Viva La Verve - April Week 1

Hi folks,

I am going to try to play along again this month with all of the Viva La Verve challenges over at SplitCoastStampers.

This is the Week 1 Sketch for April 2011.

Neat, huh? Great way to use up some scraps perhaps? Or some lovely coordinated papers from one of the gazillion paper pads/packs I have in my craft room? Well, I pondered over several sets of paper and finally settled on Basic Grey Marjolaine. I made four cards - two with a more masculine feel (with buttons for embellies) and two with a more feminine feel (with half-back pearls and fussy cut butterflies).

 card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches
  • patterned papers and buttons: Basic Grey Marjolaine
  • stamps: Verve "Wishing You", "Amazing Wishes", "Beautiful Kindness", "Big Wish"
  • half-back pearls from my stash (Recollections)
  • Spellbinders: Petite Circles, Classic Squares
additional challenges for these cards:
    I'm off in about twenty minutes to Tanya's Pixie Cottage Card Class at Heather's -- looking forward to creating again with my crafty pal!

    Thanks for stopping by!
