Lucky VLV and a New Digi

Friday, May 4, 2018
Hi friends! It's the first Friday of a new month, and I'm excited to bring you my newest Viva la Verve sketch. Our challenge is open to all and there's a prize, so I hope you'll play along with us this month.

Along with a new sketch, there's a new digi in the Verve shop this morning! Can you believe it's already May? This year seems to be flying by. The Favorite Mom DIGITAL Set is perfect for Mother's Day with several meaningful sentiments and a cherry blossom-esque flower.  I say "esque" because I don't believe there are any 6 petaled cherry blossoms in the real world. But if you know me, you know I'm not a realist. I like whimsy and symmetry, so a 6 petaled blossom it is! {grin}

I had so much fun coloring these blossoms and fussy cutting to my heart's content. I layered the two sizes of solo flowers on the larger flower with dimensionals, curling the petals for more depth, then added a few more of the small flowers and leaves to make a little flower spray for the sentiment circle.

I was so excited to color these images, I forgot to pick out papers before hand. So the sifting through paper pads to find something to match the colors I chose was the longest part of the whole cardmaking process! Haha! I finally decided on a fun polka dotted pattern and some black and white scallops. I added the horizontal accents using the Lacey Trim Duo Set to mimic the pattern, then layered everything onto a white panel embossed with large polka dots.
