Viva la Verve!

I was having Verve withdrawals after the Release Challenge week, so a Viva la Verve sketch was in order for today. :) I'm going a little backwards in time here to week 2 of August's challenges. Amber took us to a fun bedding website called Beddingstyle. I had a ton of fun selecting some bedding for my inspiration.

I eventually ended up on this little beauty called City Scene: Damask Key Lime. Isn't it fun? I know I didn't use any damask, but the colors immediately made me think of my Turning a New Leaf dp (and I was trying to find some image that didn't make me choose my October Afternoon dp, lol).

I stamped the verse in Old Olive, and sponged some Chocolate Chip onto the words, "the LORD." I love the way that just makes some words pop out a little more... Like a subtle emphasis, but through ink. I also pulled out a flourish from the Blessings set and stamped it in Spring Moss in the background. I left a little of the Dark Chocolate paper at the bottom of the sentiment so that I could wrap some twine and add a big, beautiful button. (which then required three more beautiful buttons to be added to the other side of the card. It was feeling a little lonely. hehe)

That's it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps- Verve: Jeremiah 29:11, Blessings
Paper- Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Whisper White, Turning a New Leaf dp
