Set Sail for Viva La Verve

I am determined to do all of this month's Viva la Verve challenges so I started with Week 1 last night.

I honestly think this is maybe my second card I've ever made that was long. This one measures 4" x 9". I think I stear clear of long cards because it's that much more space to fill up...but the sketch for this one made it easy. I used the color combination of white, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight keeping the navy for my main accent color.

I used my newly won Verve set Text Objects for the ship and sentiment. I know, I know! I ALWAYS seem to win regularly with Verve! LOL! I think was my 5th time winning something from the company! It's awesome! :) Anyways, this set is very awesome and I had fun using it.

Does the ship look cheesy there? I needed an object to fill that space and I thought a ship would work. I added foam tape under the sails to make them stick up too. Do you get that the ship is kind of going around the world? I also used the Divine Swirls embossing folder for the panels to get a wave feel to the texture.

The inside of the card is white and I used the text lines for this same sentiment along the bottom with a shadow image of the ship in the corner.
