Love Much

It is a hot, hot, hot Friday here in Charlotte. Step outside and guaranteed dripping sweat in, like, two minutes probably less!! I know, pretty picture, huh?? Anyway, I took off a little early from work today- intending to clean up my stamp room (really, really a mess!!) but, I'm a little behind on the weekly sketch challenges that Verve hosts on their SCS forum so, a card I made instead. Used Tosh's sketch from Week 2 and I think (cross your fingers here) it counts for the Verve Diva Dare challenge. There are Verve prizes to be won on both links so.... go check them out!!

This sentiment "Love Much" comes from one of my fav Verve stamps- Dream Big"---LOL! Actually I have many fav Verve stamps. Sketch was perfect for using DP which happens to be the Diva Dare challenge- dp and sentiments. Leaves were stamped in sage shadow on sage shadow cs and cut out with Verve's leaf die and the vellum buttefly was stamped in Versamark with text from Verve's Text Objects, embossed with white, and cut out with Verve's flutterby die. The "fingers crossed" part comes from the fact that I did use the outline image on Verve's Classy Label die from Verve's Love Notes (you can see it beneath my collage) and the leaf outline image (Bloom and Grow) on Verve's leaf die. Verve Diva police.... I really think it looks good on my card and it's not a "true, true" image!!

Here's Tosh's sketch

Oh my...that is a fabulous collage of flowers and butterfly! You know I have that butterfly die and don't recall using it that you used vellum! Stay's a blistering hot day here, too!

Verve police'am...I have to let you know that your card is bordering on fabulousity...and here in my book, that's a good thing. No tickets being issued today, just admiration for a job well done. Have a nice day ma'am.
