Yippee for Viva la Verve! :)


So...do you remember my card from last week's Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge??? What...you don't? Oh, that's right! I completely forgot to post it! Haha! Surprise, surprise! Well, I guess I will share it on the next post because Amber (the Viva la Verve hostess) emailed me this week asking me to be her Design Diva for today's Sketch with a Twist! Can you believe it??? I sure couldn't! Haha! Anyway, this is the card that I made for today's sketch. This week's sketch twist was to use some sort of embossing so I pulled out my fabulous Swiss Dots embossing folder. I wanted to use this piece of My Mind's Eye dp on my card so I pulled my color combo for it and then proceeded to pick out the Verve set I wanted to use. This set is one that I just love! It is called Jeremiah 29:11. I pulled the cross from this set and stamped it in Really Rust. I then cut it out and popped it up on some ovals that were punched out with my Nestabilities. I rounded the corners of my front panel, added some chocolate ribbon around the middle, and then popped it up on my card base. The final touch were the brads in the corners. I was originally going to put a sentiment somewhere on this card but couldn't find a place that I liked so I stamped the verse Proverbs 3:5 on the inside. If you want to see my card from last week's sketch, you can find it here. Make sure that you take part in this week's sketch because it was so much fun! You can find the details here.

Thanks so much again for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your evening!
