Viva la Verve!

And, I'm back with another Viva la Verve. I loved Amber's sketch for this week and woke up with a card in mind. It's a bit different from my normal, but I still like it!

I stamped half with the polka dots from Bountiful Backgrounds and pulled out some dp for the other half. I couldn't figure out a stamp to use in the center narrow rectangle that I liked, so I went with a big butterfly all covered in stickles for some shimmer. I slot punched the sides of the sentiment, strung some ribbon through, and added a few tiny jewels. Done!

Today is nothing but a relaxing day for me. And I'm soooooo looking forward to it! I'm going to read, maybe make another card, work on some taxes... All normal Saturday things. No running all over, flying all over, etc. Just be home. Though, I am going to watch my roommate perform in her symphony orchestra concert this evening. But that's fun! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Saturday!

  2. Fabulous use of the inspiration sketch, Kristina. Your colours are perfect. Just love that Polka Dot BG (stamp is on my wish list) and that DP is perfect for the butterfly. Fabulous as always :D Enjoy your relaxing day and fun evening! I'm off to a cat show with my daughter (aka: cat lover extrodinaire!) and them home for a shower to get the chlorine smell out of my hair from yesterday's 2.5 hour venture in the pool with the kids (yup, a late shower is my version of a lazy, relaxing day LOL!).

  3. Well, I can't say wowza because I just used that on your last about yowza? Love the blue and kraft and the sparkly nailed this one...great polkadots!! Love having a nothing planned day...sort of like today although I need to bake and finish some housework. Oh, and Men's Canadian curling is on...I think the rink from Alberta was happy Martin was busy with the Olympics and so didn't play provincials this year :) Are you enjoying the PTI release? I just wish they would slow down on the great products!!! I can't keep up!! LOL I like that Julee spaces her releases :)
