Viva la Sunshine!

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! It's time for another Viva La Verve! twisted sketch from Amber over on the Verve forum. Head on over to check out the sketch. This week's twist is to add some pink to the sketch.

I knew I wanted to use the flowers from Meditations because they keep calling my name. So I adjusted the sketch to a tall and skinny card (3.5" x 6.75") to accomodate my circles. The flowers are stamped in Purely Pomegranate, punched out with a Marvy jumbo circle punch and matted with Scalloped Classic Nestabilities. The pink pirouette cardstock is from the In Color Textured Pack (which I'm totally digging!) that I purchased simply because it was on sale! LOL I scored a line down both edges of the pink pirouette piece to add a little interest. The Purely Pomegranate piece is punched with my favorite edge punch - the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch. The next layer is Basic Gray cardstock embossed with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. The tag is cut with a Nestabilities die and the sentiment is from Artful Elegance. I finished of with some Worn Lipstick Distress Stickles on the flower centers and a little snazzy pink bling all around for some fun.

For the inside, I stamped the two smaller flowers from Meditations in Pink Pirouette and Purely Pomegranate on white, then matted with Purely Pomegranate. And there's that Doily Lace punch again....love it!
