Hi friends! Happy Friday! Fridays bring a new Viva la Verve sketch and this week's challenge is hosted by Maureen Plut. I've been itching to use the new Light Tomorrow plain jane, so pulled out some sunny papers and the July Week 3 sketch and got to work.
I just love this Browning quote, "Light tomorrow with today." It reminds me that the things we do today have a real impact on the future. I want to be the kind of person who shines so bright today that the spark will live on into tomorrow. So for this card, I went with some bright yellow to represent the sun. The coloring is all done with Pan Pastels, including stenciling the Nestabilities label, coloring the embossed sun rays and the shading of the flower from Feel the Sun. The adorable cloud border die is from The Cat's Pajamas.
Well, I've been battling severe migraines again, so I'm going to wrap this up quickly. Be sure to check out the Diva Dare posted on the Verve Blog today. It's a fabulous challenge you'll definitely want to play, plus there's a prize for commenting, so tune in over the next couple of weeks as the Divas show you how they answered this month's dare... Sentimental About Paper!
