This is the final Verve Release Sketch and it was a wonderful one to work with. I had originally planned to used "Dasher" but a few others beat me to the punch so I dug through my stamps and found this Stampendous Ruffled Poppy I have always loved. I embossed it in black and matted it with pink and black. It looked a bit bare so I pierced the corners and put a black Tiny Twinkles in the corners. I used my all time favorite Embossing Folder Swiss Dots for the white panels and added some Making Memories Small Polka Dots DP. Martha Stewart came through with the border punch and I finished things off with some black sheer ribbon. Then I looked at the sketch and realized I had omitted the panel under the ribbon - ugh!!! So I added a strip of white to the bottom and changed the black sheer ribbon to black satin ribbon for a bit more "weight" as the sheer was too "light" once I added the white strip. Gotta love it when it's an easy fix LOL!
I have now completed all the Verve Release Sketches and am ready to party at the Verve Release Party this Friday night. Come and join us if you have some time. Julee always comes up with wonderful new sets and the Divas create some amazing sample cards using the new sets that you can drool over. Plus, the new sets are available in the Verve Store immediately following the release party.
I hope to have some time this weekend to catch up on this week's Mojo sketch as well as Mercy's sketch. It's been a crazy busy month as I'm doing overflow work for my husband's office in addition to my regular before and after school daycare work and running my kids to and from activities etc. Consequently, stamping time has been cut short....said sticking my lower lip out and pouting LOL! Wish there were more hours in a day!
That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by :D
