Phew..... Thank Goodness Tomorrow is Friday!!

Really busy week at work and my older daughter is in San Fran for work so, DH and I have been helping a little with the fiance's kids. Going through card withdrawal {LOL!!}. Laid this card out early this week and just now got a chance to finish. Thank Goodness I was a "lucky duck" and won the Verve release {check out the Verve thread in SCS forum- weekly sketch challenges with inspiration pics and complete them all- puts you in a random drawing to win the next release} as I haven't had a chance to play in the release week sketch challenges except for this one!! Verve has a new Fall release tomorrow and the sneek peaks have been awesome!! Can't wait!!
Colors are from the Curtain Call Color Challenge to use Old Olive, Crumbcake, Cajun Craze, and More Mustard. Used Julee's sketch from World Cardmaking Day/Release Week-VSWCD5

Here is the sketch and colors-

Here's the card-

Stamped the "fleur" from Blessings {this has become a fav of mine recently} onto the background and heat embossed with clear, sentiment from the Verve set Blue Skies was stamped in old olive on a spellbinders nestie, cut out the next size nestie in cork and layered behind at an angle, added silky leaves {Amy Sheffer aka pickletree on SCS recently used one on a Verve card and it reminded me that I had purchased some last year}, paper pierced and add some hand stitching with TCP linen thread, used a MFT wood button with a little ribbon and done!!


P.S. Betty left you a PM on SCS to get you to the ribbon. I think it is May Arts but, I bought it at Taylored Expressions- pick ribbon, polka dot, and keep going- lots of colors!!

This is GORGEOUS, Vickie!! Fabulous use of the Curtain Call colours and I love the cork and skeleton leaves. You knocked this one out of the park!! Hope the little ones aren't wearing you out too badly LOL!

Oh, Vickie, this is fabulous! Beautiful blend of the colors and the tucked leaves with the layerd cork and fab ribbon...totally scrumptious. Where does one get ribbon like that btw? Beautiful card!
