Happy Birthday Verve!!

Yeah!! I am back online with photoshop working!! Just had to "get that out of my system"!! I need to quit  sharing my computer but, that's not in my nature... soo..., I have a new laptop (hidden) for emergencies!

Verve is having a birthday this month and I really wanted to play along....

Originally intended to play in the sequin challenge too but, I'm too late for that. All images and dies are from Verve stamps. The background is stamped "tone on tone" using the leaves from Bloom & Grow. Added a layer and then another that was sponged with SU Pink Pirouette ink, followed by stamping images from Poppy Birthday, added my little shaker using the Pastel Sequin Mix. The sentiment is from Chevron Love and the banner is from Flag It Dies. Some Verve ribbon with twine finishes it off.

Used Maureen's Viva la Verve sketch week 2 for the layout.

Hope you're having a great WE! We're going out on the boat tomorrow for a little sunshine and relaxing!

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

yeah, you snuck one in :) Adore how you created the BG with the poppies and created a shaker card too! Lovely bow/twine combo too!

LOVE this sweet shaker card! I must remember to stamp the tone on tone for backgrounds...always a classy look! Glad you got to the bottom of your computer woes!
