Viva la Verve

I'm back! In So Cal, that is.  For a little while. For a grand total of six more days. Then I'm off and running again, lol!  For a summer with no plans, it sure is packed. How did that happen?!

I think it has been eons since I have played with Viva la Verve. I loved this week's sketch and had to play along. The other two have been saved on my desktop for weeks. Weeks!  I will play with them... Eventually.  But back to this card and this week's sketch.  I pulled out so MME dp that is uber-feminine (but gorgeous!) and ran with it.

I stitched around the perimeter, adding a little section of zigzagging along the top right, sponged some tea dye stains around the sentiment, went a little wild with some tiny jewels, and added some twine to finish of the girly-yet-slightly-rustic look.  It's very country if I look at it in a decorative sense.  Well, whatever it is, it's done and I like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Yeah, a Kristina card :) Great take on the sketch. Love the papers. Glad to hear you are enjoying summer to the max :) We're back in the pool for a second set of swimming lessons next week so more laps for mama - great for toning up the old flab factor. I have the book you're reading on my Kindle for future reading. Do you have a Kindle/Nook? Pixel in Ink is a great site if you do - give free books every day as well as deals and there is a sister site called Inspired Reads for Christian books. Needless to say, my reading list has grown significantly since I got it LOL! Big cyber hug for you :)

  2. I just call it gorgoues! love the twine treatment! Yay for having the time to just do what we want and go when we want to go! I love it!
