Hi friends! Happy Sunday! I got a little time this weekend to participate in some VSN challenges over on splitcoast, so I thought I'd pop in and share one of my cards.
The Red, White and Blue Challenge was the perfect excuse to test drive the brand-new Red White & Beautiful Ribbon Collection from Verve. I wanted to make a congrats card for Trevor, since he is walking now. Kellan beat him by about 2 weeks, and oh my were those some frustrating, tear-filled days! Trevor was so jealous and so mad at Kellan that he would cry if Kellan even came near him. Anyhow, they're both walking now and Trevor couldn't be prouder of himself. So I thought I'd make a little card to commemorate the occasion to slip into their memory book.
The sketch is the Deconstructed Sketch from last week. It just called my name. The bottom border is cut with Laurie Willison's new Scalloped Card Hanger Die and I paired it with the Flourished Trim Die. The banner is cut with the Banner Bundle Die Set, and I stamped the title sentiment from Shining Star on a nestabilities oval, then accented with stars cut from the Starry Die (back in stock and on sale!!) I added a bow using the navy/cream ribbon from Red White and Beautiful and then finished off with rhinestone stars from Pizzazz Aplenty and some navy stickles.
Okay, that's all from me today. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend and I'll see you back here tomorrow for Mojo Monday!

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. 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.
