Hi friends!  It's Friday and time for another Viva la Verve! sketch over in our forum.  This week's sketch comes from Christyne and is totally layer-licious!

When I sat down to stamp these beautiful pastels in the Walnut Grove paper pad called out to me.  Back when I was in high school peach and mint green were THE thing.  I even had jeans in both colors!  The other day when I was walking at the mall, I noticed several clothing store displays with peach and mint green or aqua.  Crazy how styles and colors come and go... and come back again.  Anyhow, it's a very feminine combination, so I went frilly with my card.

The kraft doily is a freebie die cut I got with an order from somewhere.  I stamped over it with one of the text border strips from Text Objects, then added just a bit of sponging around the edges with Leather Mix'd Media Inx.  The sentiment uses the Nehemiah 8:10 Plain Jane.  I simply masked off the other lines on the stamp with masking tape so just the joy got inked up, then peeled off the masking tape and stamped.  I embossed it in clear, then added a little shading with copic markers.

I used a Christy Tomlinson rub-on along my banner strip for the border, then added a bit of ric rac and a seam binding bow from the Signature Ribbon Collection for embellishment.  Then finished off with some more sponged edges and a bit of liquid pearls on each scallop.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  Oh, and be sure to hop on over to the Verve blog today for the kick-off to our April Diva Dare!!!
