Bramble Rose

Hi friends! Happy Friday!  It's time for another Viva la Verve! sketch over in the VLV forum, and this week Charmaine has a super sweet sketch for you.

Yesterday for a little much-needed distraction, I took the twins to Michael's and courtesy of a 50% coupon just happened to come home with the gorgeous Bramble Rose papers from My Mind's Eye.  I couldn't wait to use them, so when I saw the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  And since I wore the boys out craft shopping, I even had a little nap time to do it in!

The stamps are all from the Sweet Treats set.  I stamped the swirly label in soft sky, then hand cut and matted with crumb cake cut with the Classy Label Die   The Embossed Oval Die is popped up in the center and I stamped the thank you in baked brown sugar and then did a 2nd generation stamping of the swirly hearts above and below the sentiment.  The strips of paper are cut down, sponged with some Brushed Corduroy distress ink, then added to a panel of crumb cake.  After I glued the strips down, I crimped just the bottom section of the panel for a little textured interest.  I finished off with a seam binding bow using the Signature Ribbon Collection and accented with a vintage brad from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It will be a BUSY week on the blog next week as Verve Release Week kicks off on Monday!  I'm so excited to share our new sets with you!

    This is a most attractive card that is very pleasing to the eye, the Pp panels relate a wonderful interest and juxtapose well with your added elements.
