well my goal to make three cards for each of the weekly Viva La Verve Challenges didn't quite get past the second sketch of the year. For the last three sketches, I only found time to make one card for each sketch. So far anyways - but who knows? Maybe I will miraculously find time tomorrow night! But I doubt it.
Anyways, this is my card for the Week 5 sketch
- finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, black card stock base, red card stock mat
- patterned paper: Martha Stewart Valentine's mat stack I picked up last year (or maybe the year before that?)
- stamps: Verve "Hearts on Fire". The central heart is actually a bigger heart from the set that I stamped twice onto the patterned paper and cut out. The first one to cover the smaller heart that is actually in the flourish and the second one is popped up with dimensional foam.
- bling it on: there are 19 wee little pearls on this card. 18 of them on the ends of curlicues on the flourish and then one more that I coloured with my R39 Copic marker to do the "I" in Valentine's.
additional challenges for this card:
