Viva La Verve - Week 1 Sketch


You all know how I love my sketch challenges! This one is from Verve. You can read all about it here in the SCS forum, but basically it was to use the sketch and also some kind of hardware on your card. There will be a new "sketch with a twist" every Friday in January. Fun!

So, the day I saw this challenge (last Saturday), I had been to the LSS here in town to burn up the last of my store credit. One of the things that I bought was this Basic Grey butterfly paper from the Urban Prairie line. I LOVED it! Yes, I noticed it was a bit of a "brights" color scheme, but I figured I could work with it. hmmm.....

To be honest, I am not sure this card is actually blog-worthy. I am so mentally challenged when it comes to working with bright colors. But since I plan to do all the Verve challenges for this month, I thought I should go ahead and post it. Just...don't judge my blog on this card alone, ok? LOL! Ok here goes...

The "hardware" portion is in the form of the colored brads along the right side. The colors are Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Kiwi Kiss, along with that Basic Grey patterned paper. I colored the Cuttlebugged/dry embossed parts of the turquoise paper with a clear Spica glitter pen. The image is BRAND NEW from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. I am really loving all my latest images, I will have more projects with them soon. Some great Valentine's Day stuff, some new backgrounds, Easter...you'll be in love too! I colored the bird with a Glaze pen and doodled around the scallop.

Hope you all enjoy your Thursday! It's been a busy week here, to me it feels like it should be next Tuesday already, LOL!

8 people made my day!:
