Hi friends! How is your week treating you? Mine has just been busy, busy, busy! I made this card last Friday and this is the first chance I've had to post it. It uses Anya's Viva la Verve March Week 4 sketch. Today is the last day to get your entries in for our March Viva la Verve $100 gift certificate drawing! Have you been playing along?
If you can believe it, this card began in my head as a very clean and simple card using a left over butterfly that didn't make it onto my Mojo card for this week. But then when I was searching for supplies, I discovered the Serenity set in a stack of things on my desk. So I switched gears. I wanted an earthy look to go with the silhouette, so I embossed a crumb cake piece and distressed with gelatos, baby wipes and a bit of gesso. The silhouette and sentiments are all from Serenity. The little tab is cut using the Flag It Die Set. I chose a prima wood cut that had just arrived in my Scarlet Lime mixed media subscription, and kept it natural by simply sketching in the petals with a pencil, then adding some glossy accents and glitter inside my pencil sketch marks. Some fun black and white paper from my stash is beneath a strip of burlap and I wrapped some bakers twine around that.
That's it on the card front. I hope you have a fantastic day. Thanks so much for stopping by!
