Be Mine

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another Viva la Verve sketch, and this week Shannan's bringing a clean & simple sketch your way!  Play along with all 4 of the January sketches for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to Verve.  But hurry, the deadline is Thursday, February 2.  Check out the Viva la Verve! forum for all the details.


For my card, I pulled out the Enchanted Collection papers by Bo Bunny.  It's a beautiful pad of black and white papers, which I then proceeded to ink up and color with a variety of Distress Stains for an artsy kind of look.  Next I embossed the Valentine Be Mine sentiment from Heart's Desire in early espresso on a strip of vellum, which I cut with the Big Scallop Cutups from TCP.  I stitched this panel onto my paper, layering a piece of lace trim which I dyed with distress stains below it.

Next up, I pulled out my Wavy Hearts die and cut one out in Blushing Bride, then stamped one of the heart clusters from Heart's Desire all over it in Tattered Rose, distressed and added a twine bow and a mini clothespin.  I finished off with some pink pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.

That's all from me today.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and if you find a little time to create, be sure to play along with Viva la Verve!
