Hi friends! Happy Friday! Today I've got a sample for this week's Viva la Verve! sketch to share with you. This week's sketch is a super fun one designed by Charmaine. My card got bigger and bigger as I went along, so I ended up turning it into a 5.5" square card. Since it was being mailed in a package with a gift, size wasn't an issue.
I started with the flowers from Dream Big, which I stamped in Cherry Cobbler, then hand trimmed with scissors. They're coated with a mixture of diamond glaze and glitter, then topped with a button. Next I pulled out the Bloom & Grow set and stamped the leaves in pumice stone on both of the Newsprint designer paper layers. Next I embossed the largest leaf in basic gray ink onto a basic gray Elegant Leaves Die cut. The sentiment is from the Hope Blooms set and I did a little row of paper piercing above and below it. I finished off with some triple pearl stick pins, a red seam binding double bow and just a hint of surprise in the corner with some red star bling.
Okay, that's all from me on the card front. I'm spending more and more time in bed as the weight of the babies are well over 12 pounds combined, and that's just downright uncomfortable, any way you slice it! We've made it to the average delivery time for twins (36 weeks), so it's just a waiting game now. Hope you have a fabulous weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
