Viva la Verve!

Yup. More Verve. hehe. Getting tired of it yet?! I don't think I ever could. This may be my favorite card I made for the release, and it's the one card I FORGOT to share at the release party!! Doh!

This was also the last card I made. It was one of those cards where I was at work, got this idea in my head, and HAD to come home and stamp it right away! I love the monochromatic look of it, and the elegance.

I used last week's Viva la Verve sketch as my launching point. The twist this week was to create a card for a woman in our life. This is definitely heading off to my bf in the near future. I love making cards of encouragement to send to her throughout the year. Since we live so far away from each other, phone calls and cards are two of our major forms of communication.

I used the little branch image to create my own wreath, and then used it again in Versamark to create a soft background. I also used the stripes from Bountiful Backgrounds.

It's back to the work grind for me today. Another long week of fighting traffic and early mornings. Can't wait to move closer!! Thanks for stopping by!

Paper- Spring Moss, Tea Leaves dp (PTI), Old Olive, Whisper White (SU)
Ink- Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
