Viva la Verve!

Good morning! Here is my final Viva la Verve card, as promised, for the month of January. I don't know what in the world it was with this sketch and the inspiration pictures, but I was absolutely stumped on this one. I've stared at these pictures for the last two and one half weeks, and nothing has jumped out at me... I've been completely "un-inspired."

The red coat hanging against the coat rack finally stood out a bit more than anything else, and I figured I'd better run with it while any shred of inspiration was present. I can't say that I am in love with my card... It's just OK. But goodness am I glad that it is done! And I'm glad that I can say that I at least attempted it. It just feels like it is missing something... but I don't know what that something is.

Well, that's enough out of me. Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies- Stamps- Verve: Meditations
Paper- Red Riding Hood, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Candy Lane dp

  1. Kristina, You're too hard on yourself. The card is beautiful just the way it is!

  2. Gorgeous colour combo and card! Love how you used the flower and outlined the one with gold. No problems with this one from my end :D By the way, I've given you an award. Not sure how to forward the actual award (computer delinquent here) so if you go to my blog you can get the info :D

  3. wow! Love the pop of red :) Love the glitter on the flower too :D Are you still having heavy rain storms? We are still warm and sunny (and by warm, that only means 0 degrees Celcius, I believe that's 32 degrees F, but that's warm for us!). Yes, 2 more days....I'm living more for the weekends lately...don't know why...maybe I just need the fun of Valentines, Chinese New Year, Olympics and 100 will make February fly by!! The torch is in our town tonight :) Yes, sewing machine next :)
