A Hundred Hearts!


Good evening everyone! It is quite around here tonight because my hubby and my bro are both at youth tonight. I usually go but wasn't able to tonight due to some unforeseen stomach issues! I am not sure what upset it so bad but I can hardly walk without having issues! Ok...anyway...TMI...I know! My whole point of telling you that was that I have time to share this card with you as well as go and make some more! As long as I am sitting, I am fine!

I made this card using my brand new Verve stamps! I actually won this set at the last stamp release (Thanks Julee) called "Hundred Hearts" and I am so glad I did because it is fabulous! I love all the sentiments and verses that are included in it! I am sure you will be seeing some others in the near future! :) The sketch that I used for this card was from this past Friday's Viva la Verve sketch with a twist of pink! Now, if you know me, you know I LOVE pink and that this challenge would be easy for me. Well, I have to admit that it really was! :D The only part I struggled with was trying to get the hearts to fit. I actually was supposed to have 3 circles but instead substituted the middle circle with the sentiment. The dsp I used is actually some new paper from SU! called Candy Lane. I just love the colors and patterns that are included in this pack of paper! I decided to use the two pieces of dsp and layer them on some Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, and Pink Pirouette card stock. I used my new (thanks to my hubby) Martha Stewart scallop lace punch to add a little flair. I then tied some Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon over the middle of the card and popped the sentiment up on top of that. I guess that really sums up this card but if you do have a question, just leave a comment.

Well, I'm off to go stamp! I am going to play around some more of these fantastic sketch challenges that I haven't had a chance to use yet! I will hopefully be able to get a lot done this evening! Take care and good night!
