In The Groove

Hey everyone! Today's the second day of the Anni-VERVE-sary sketches over on the Verve forum. If you haven't checked it out, you should, because we're giving a huge prize pack to one lucky person who completes all the sketches. Plus, we've got other random prizes up our sleeves, so be sure to make a little time to play!

Today's Anni-VERVE-sary sketch is for a square card. I knew for this card I wanted to use this sentiment, so I based the rest of my card on it. I picked colors that seemed to say "groovy" to me - So Saffron, Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate and stamped the flower from Feeling Groovy in alternating colors. Next I colored the flowers with Copics and then cuttlebugged the stamped layer with another "groovy" item - my neglected Paisley embossing folder. For the image panel I stamped the sentiment in Purely Pomegranate and matted on Groovy Guava. I then punched a 7/8" So Saffron Square and a 1" pomegranate square, cut on the diagonal and matted together behind the image panel. Next I used my horizontal slot punch to make a little slide for the ribbon then tied the ribbon around the whole shebang. I accented with a Feeling Groovy flower which I cut out, colored with Copics and then embellished with Stardust Stickles and a Kaiser pearl. My sketch called for a trio of something in the bottom right corner, but I felt a little rebellious and moved it up to my sentiment panel to balance out the flower. Everything is matted on a Purely Pomegranate card base cut with a scallop square Nestabilities die.

Okay, I have another pretty cool card to show you today, but it's coming a little later. ;)
