A Little Bit of You

Hey Everyone! Happy Saturday! Just wanted to pop in and say hi before I head into the shipping cave for a while. Our release party was so much fun last night, and the new sets are now available on the Verve website.



Today's card is one of my favorites with this release. I just love this sentiment from the Because of You set. It says, "I hope that when people look at me they see a little bit of you." I paired it with a few of the silhouettes from the same set. To get the two colored flowers, I inked the entire stamp in Kiwi Kiss, then used a blender pen to remove the ink from the flower areas. Next I used a Rose Red marker to color the flower areas and then stamped. I sponged a little soft sky at the top for sky and a little kiwi kiss at the bottom for grass. For the backgrounds I used the new Medallion Plain Jane for a soft cloudlike look on the Soft Sky panel, and then stamped the silhouettes acroos the kiwi kiss panel in kiwi kiss. The ribbon is some old pomegranate SU! satin ribbon and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I finished with a few Stardust Stickles accents and then some pearls for the butterfly body.
