It's been awhile since I've posted but I'm up to *here* in wedding stuff right now. My sister-in-law is getting married on Sunday so things are pretty hectic. I'm in charge of all the bouquets, the wedding programs, as well as my boys who are both ring bearers...and did I mention I'm playing the flute for the ceremony and my mom and I are singing a duet? Yeah...I know. LOL!
Anyways...I've been a bit busy.
But I did get a couple cards made this week, one for my cousin's graduation and the other for a Viva la Verve challenge. Unfortunately though I adored the graduation card I made, I sadly mailed it without taking a picture! ARGH! But I did get a picture of my card for the Viva la Verve May 2012 Week #5 sketch.
I played with my new Verve stamps and die with this card. The flowers and leaves are from the Sunny Days set and the die is a coordinating one called Leafy Sprigs. I also used the Floral Circles die for the flowers though it wasn't an exact match. The super gorgeous fuscia and green paper is some I snagged this week when we popped into Hobby Lobby. This sentiment is from the set Words of Wisdom also by Verve.
I went over the word "wonderful" with Stardust Stickles and it really adds a nice sparkle. The button centers of the flowers also have been "stickled". I just love the happiness of this card!
