Hi friends! Happy Friday! It's time for another Viva la Verve! sketch and this week's hostess is Laurie Schmidlin. And as a special surprise, I'm featuring the brand new Be Okay Plain Jane that released this morning. I was saving this stamp for our next release, but with the babies due in only 4 more weeks, I have no idea when the next release will be, so decided to just release this stamp by itself. It's a phrase that has been near and dear to Mark and I throughout this pregnancy, and I'm sure we'll continue to say it to each other on a daily basis after the twins are born.... everything is going to be okay.
For my card, I went with a favorite springtime color combo of mine... pink and green. The papers are from the Victoria Gardens collection from Echo Park and the butterflies are from Verve's Twitterpated set. I added some ribbons, liquid pearls and some rhinestone bling along the sides to dress things up, but still stayed pretty true to Laurie's sketch, other than moving the bow a bit.
I hope you'll get a chance to play along with Viva la Verve this month. We post a new sketch each Friday and if you participate in all 4 of the February sketches, you'll be entered in our drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Verve! All the challenge details can be found in our Viva la Verve forum on SCS.

I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
