Just Be

In between painting and looking at granite... I managed to get one card done this weekend {used to doing several over the weekend when I am off... soon the renovations will be done, YEAH!!} This card is for the Verve weekly sketch on SCS... this week it's Amber's -- long and slender. Colors are from the Play Date Cafe challenge... teal, brown, and mustard-- PDCC98.



















Used MME Hattie papers {perfect for the colors} and added some sprigs from Verve's Sunny Days set which were cut out with Verve's A Cut Above Leafy Sprigs die. Flowers used a Verve image from Sunny Days stamped in early espresso on early espresso cs and taken with teal on taken with teal cs and then clear embossed and layered after scrunching a little. For the middle tag, I used the grid image from Verve's Tag Time and cut out with Verve's Tagged Rectangle die, added a grommet and some early espresson ribbon. Sentiment from Verve's Words of Wisdom was stamped in early espresso. Phew.... lot's of new Verve going on here!!

The colors and sketch....




















Playing with a new camera... hoping it will help with evening pics. It's "dang" hard to take a pic of a long card or is it just me!!

Happy Monday!! Love when you stop by and appreciate all the kind words!! Hoping to get caught up blogging this week.... that DH of mine is a "slave driver" when it comes to renovations and getting it done, hehehe!!

Great take on the sketch! I have made something similar with the flowers for the top and bottom panels. Love the tag in the middle and well done using the insp. piece! Perfect DPs for it. I had a bit of trouble photographing this long card as well.
