Hi friends! It's Friday again and time for a brand new Viva la Verve Sketch. This week's sketch is by Anya and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to pull out an "oldy but goody" set... Grateful Elegance.
I thought those thin little strips would be perfect for the thin border stamp, so that's where I started. Next I stamped the thanks a bunch sentiment on the main panel, then filled in randomly with the larger flower. I also stamped two more of the larger flowers to cut out, then stamped and cut out 7 of the medium sized flowers to pop up. The smoky slate layer is stamped with the large square background stamp from the set, then I added a punched border and some black matting. The soft sky base is embossed with a chicken wire embossing folder and I finished off with some turquoise bling and some glossy accents and glitter for a bit of sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

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.
