Verve Week 3 and Diva Dare!

Happy Hump Day!! Things are gloriously looking up at work... Cecilia is onboard and learning curve is high!! If that doesn't make sense... takes 2 to run my small department... important but, small--when one leaves-- it's heck (200% productivity) so, she is a blessing- both in time and talent and willingness to do what it takes!!

Back to the business at hand... Started this card a couple weeks ago and finally finished!! Used Diva Christyne's sketch for week 3 of the Verve weekly sketch challenges on SCS AND was thinking of the Verve Diva Dare when I was making it.


Had some fun layering it up!! Verve goodies-- Scalloped Trim Trio die, Curvy Bookplate die, Flutterby die, So Fluttery stamps, Tag Time border stamp, and sentiment from Fabulous You. A whole lotta Verve! Added some brads (nod to Christyne- that girl works brads!) and a butterfly (nod to Marissa (butterfly, flower Queen) and Charmaine (bright colors-- mine are a little "deeper" but, bold nonetheless!).
 
The sketch....



Even though I worked on this a while ago... the Universe (oh yeah!) was against me but, I think I'm squeaking it in just in time!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

Long time no comment but sure am glad I stopped by, 'cause this is one GORGEOUS card!! Love the yellow and black - really eye catching! So happy to hear you've got a partner in crime at work again!. I'm feeling the heavy load at work as well, though not quite as much as it sounds like you were doing.

Absolutely LOVE this, Vickie!! The black makes a fabulous statement and love the mustard and blue with it. Gorgeous butterfly front and center and the bow is lovely too. Fabulous job with the Dare :)

YEAH for your second body too!! Soooo glad she is a doer and a goer. Here's to life at work being much more doable very soon ((hugs))!!!
