Anni-Verve-sary Anniversary Challenge

Hi folks,

continuing with my cards for the Anni-Verve-sary challenges from Verve. The 2nd challenge is to create an anniversary card with wood or silver elements - fitting since this is Verve's 5th anniversary.

I chose to go with wood - my sweetie is a wood-worker and I have been known to raid his supply of wood veneers for my cards. As a matter of fact, I did just that for THIS card.

card details:

  • finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches, textured brown Bazzill cardstock for the base, white cardstock for layers.
  • patterned papers: Basic Grey "Bittersweet". I thought the light brown in the striped paper was a perfect match for the wood veneer I "borrowed" from my sweetie's woodshop. In fact the stripes worked out well because of the grain the veneer as well. 
  • stamps: Verve "Love Story", "Love Notes" (both sets are 20% off during the August Anniversary sale)
  • Spellbinders petite circles and scalloped squares
  • layout: Mojo Monday 247

Once again, I am entering this card in the Verve Card Carnival for a chance to win the entire release! I get all weak-kneed just thinking about the possibility!

Thanks for stopping by!
