A Simple Hello and Complete Set

Happy Thursday, friends!  I'm popping in with another card using this week's Viva la Verve! sketch.  It's actually one I made for the latest Verve release and the card that inspired the sketch, but I never posted it, so today's the day!  {grin}

It's a super simple card, just a white square stamped with the Hello Friend plain jane and the two polka dot butterflies from Petals & Wings.  I colored the butterflies with copic markers, then added some black rhinestones for the butterfly bodies.  The square is attached to a black cardstock panel with washi tape and then mounted on a white card base.

And, there was one more card in that card set I made for the release, so I might as well show it now.

Here, I've stamped the flowers and stems from Petals & Wings on a white rectangle and added just a portion of one of the borders from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set in pistachio pudding.  The sentiment is the new Being Awesome plain jane and it's stamped in the vintage oval frame from  Die Sidekicks and cut with the coordinating Vintage Oval Die.  I added some faux enamel dots to the centers of the flower by taking some small circle punches, stamping with the polka dot flower center stamp in the coordinating ink and then covering with a thick layer of glossy glaze.  It's hard to see, but the card base is a pretty embossed polka dot background.

Here's the whole set of cards from the release in one (not so great) photo...

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!

I love your cards. I especially LOVE first one. LOVE the black and white, the polka dot washi and just the right pop of color on those sweet butterflies.
Thanks for sharing.
