Verve Release Challenge Card #4

Phew! Four down, one more to go! It's still challenge time over on the Verve blog to help celebrate World Card Making Day and Verve's new release. I'm so excited for the sneak peaks to start tomorrow! I always love me some new Verve. :)

This fourth card was a little difficult in its conception, but once I started working it went really quickly! I think I finished this in 20 minutes flat. That quite possibly could be a new record. The color combo was inspired by this card that Maureen posted a few days ago on her blog. Purple is one of my favorite colors, and then mixed with some More Mustard/Summer Sunrise it becomes all the more heavenly!

It's a fairly self-explanatory card. Lots of Pretty Pastels dp, some EK Success edge punching, a bow, and some sparklie jewels. Nothing fancy. Just nice, clean, crisp lines and beautiful colors. Oh, and I finally inked up another new Verve set: Framed Wishes. This was the free set at the last release, and if you didn't get it, shame on you! It's lovely! Though, I did switch out the sentiment that came with it for this little Plain Jane. Doesn't Julee (Verve owner/designer extraordinaire) create the most beautiful fonts?!

Have a wonderful Tuesday! See you back here tomorrow for the final card. Thanks for stopping by!

Maybe tonight :)

  2. Totally yummy mix of colours, Kristina :) I'm green with envy at your 20 minute blitz to make this beauty!! My poor little creative gene just can't work that fast LOL! Lovely use of that frame and I agree, Julee has THE best fonts around!! Have a blessed day!
