Viva la Verve!

I'm back with my first Viva la Verve card for the month of February. I'm slightly behind on these (eek!)... It's definitely time to catch up. I noticed that week 2's sketch and inspiration pictures lined up perfect with another Papertrey color challenge! Yay for killing two birds with one stone!

For this month's Viva la Verve, we're walking through dining rooms. And I tell ya, the inspiration pictures that Amber finds for use are absolutely stunning! I think I'm going to use another one of the pictures for this week as my week one inspiration picture. I loved the colors in it!

I really needed some craft buttons, lol. But I had to make due with Aqua Mist... which wasn't too bad since I found these really neat buttons in my Aqua Mist stash: shapes, glitter, and texture! I'm working some more on my tying bows with one single piece of ribbon... I think I'm getting the hang of it. This is my first one that actually resembles one from Dawn's tutorial, hehe. I originally had my sentiment on a little tag to hang off of the bow, but it just didn't feel right there. I chopped off the "tag" portion and turned it into a little rectangle and stuck it in the bottom corner.

Thanks for stopping by!
