This year we've added a challenge each month, so we hope you'll play along. Our February challenge is Floral Fantasy, and the challenge is to add some petal power to your card. You can use the inspiration photo or not, but you do need to flash some flowers somewhere on your project. There's a prize for a challenge participant, as well as a prize for a commenter along today's blog hop, so why not try for both and increase your chances to win?! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and details.
For my card, I was inspired by the colors in the challenge graphic. I added some washi tape as a faux wallpaper background on my soft sky layer, then pulled out Bloom & Grow and the Floral Circles Die Set and started stamping in strawberry slush and barely banana. The leaves are inked with old olive and cut with the coordinating Elegant Leaves Die. I added the sentiment on a vellum tag, then embellished with twine, glimmer stones and some Pastel Sequin Mix. Lots of fun and a much needed sunny distraction on a snowy day!
