Black & White Blessings

Happy Friday!  I'm right in the middle of a no-good, very-bad cold, so I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet.  It's Friday, and that means it's time for another Viva la Verve! sketch.  This week's hostess is Maureen and I love her sweet little tilted panel sketch.

I started by stamping the swirl from Blessings in black on a circle, then stamping the Birthday Blessings sentiment from the same set on a Lil' Inkers Sentiment Flag die cut.  I then matted with a petite scallop circle and accented with white opal liquid pearls and a prima flower.

For the ribbon treatment, I laid down a piece of the polka dot ribbon, cutting tails on either end.  Then I simply made two separate bows, glued them to the flat ribbon and glued a prima flower center on top.  The black border is a Martha Stewart border punch and I used a couple different embossing folders and finished off with some distressed edges.

Enabler's List:
Stamps:  Blessings (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Black, White
Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories: Sentiment Flags Die (Lil' Inker Designs), Classic & Petite Scallop Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders), border punch (Martha Stewart), polka dot ribbon (Creative Impressions), polka dot embossing folder (QuicKutz), texture fades (Tim Holtz), flower center, flower (Prima), white opal liquid pearls (Ranger)
