Petals Just Because


Happy Saturday, blog friends!  I'm popping in with my card for this week's Viva la Verve sketch. It's the final week of the month, so if you're playing along with us, the deadline for our monthly $100 gift voucher drawing is Thursday.  Check out all the deets on the VLV Sketches blog.


I had some leftovers sitting on my desk from making my Mojo Monday card earlier this week and I that woodgrain paper was just calling out to me again.  I adjusted the VLV sketch to a 3.5 x 5.5" card because, well, I'm just sort of loving on this size right now!  I added some faux stitching to a couple panels with a paper piercer and a pen.  The flower from the new Petals & Wings is stamped onto book paper and cut with the coordinating Wings & Petals Die Set.  I added a bit of watercolor crayon goodness to brighten things up a bit, then stamped one of the dotted flower centers and punched out with a 3/8" circle punch.  The heart shape is cut from the woodgrain paper with the Wavy Hearts Die Set.  The sentiment is stamped onto sahara sand and then I wrapped some linen thread around the panel and embellished with one of the super sparkly sequins from the new Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  A couple of rounded corners and my card was finished.  Easy peasy!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend.  If you haven't checked out the new products at Verve yet, head on over.  We've also started our May sale a wee bit early and have a fantastic assortment of stamps & dies marked down 25%.
