Verve Release Challenge Card- D

Yup, I'm milking this release for all it's worth here on the blog. :) And you love me for it!

This is the card I whipped up for the fourth sketch. Only one more to go tomorrow. I hereby admit that this card probably took me the longest. I really wanted to use more of my Wisteria dp, but it just overwhelmed this card as a large background.

So what's the next best thing? Embossed polka dots! I kept with the glittery theme and use kaleidoscope embossing powder to give the polka dots some super shimmer. I did sneak some of the dp onto the card as a frame and in the little half-circle embellishment. I used my circle punches to create the little side embellishment. Cheating, I know, but it works!

I'm so glad that today is Friday. This week has seemed so long since I've been wiped out from being sick. Let's just say I got LOTS of sleep at night. Early bed times for me! I ended up not going to work Wednesday through Thursday due to another lovely development in my episode with the H1N1 virus. This is not a bug you want to have! Just take my word for it and move on. I'm hoping to get to head back to work on Monday, but am definitely not going to push it this time. If I even think I need another day, I'm taking it.

Here's hoping your weekend is nice and relaxing as well! And stay healthy! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. it's a close call, but I think this is my favourite...I think the polka dots and ribbon did it for me :) Rest up and enjoy the weekend. Aren't Fridays great? I do love having a Monday to Friday job :) I'm a creature of habit
