I can't decide....


I have three gorgeous cards laying here on my desk that are just waiting to be posted and I can't decide which one to use. I guess I will go in the order they have to be posted! Haha! I may end up posting two of them or possibly all three. We will just have to wait and see! :D

For this card I used the Verve March Release sketch challenge! I had to alter it a little bit so that I could use my ribbon (we all know how hard it is for me to make a card without it) but I think it still works. I just moved my second little embellishment down some. Anyway, I did this sketch in under 30 minutes because I was on my way out the door but I really do like how it turned out. I pulled my Verve Plain Jane stamp called Psalm 31:24 and paired it with my BasicGray Porcelain paper. I gave the edges of my card stock a distressed look by running my fingernail down the sides of them and then rubbing my sponge dauber over them with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink. I scalloped the bottom edge of my dp with my Martha Stewart Lace punch too. The verse was stamped in Ruby Red ink and covered with my Sakura glittery roll pen. I felt like this gave the ink a more muted look, which it needed. I then popped the verse up on dimensionals and added some ribbon and a little flower that I had colored with my Ruby Red SU! marker. Well, I think that about sums up this card.

I hope you are all having an enjoyable Sunday afternoon! Did anyone forget to set their clocks ahead last night? We almost did but thankfully I just happened to see that my computer clock had jumped forward an hour! Phew! :) Well, make sure you stop by later tonight for my second card of the day! Also, tonight is the Verve release and I am SO excited about it! I will be at the party!

Take care!
