This is the inspiration picture I selected for this week's Verve Challenge. I love the colours in this picture! The wreaths immediately caught my eye because they reminded me of the wreathes in the Verve Accent Notes and Verve Thankful Notes sets. I opted for the Accent Notes wreath because it was a bit smaller and fit the sketch better.
I started off with some of this yummy polka dotted paper and paired it up with some Mellow Moss and a close match to Sahara Sand. The wreath was framed with my birthday Nesties. I added brown half pearls to the wreath and a little red heart in the middle because the lady is adding red flowers to the wreath (you can click on the image to enlarge it and see the red). It adds such a wonderful pop of colour to the earth tones. I cheated a bit on the sentiment panel and put it under the image rather than partly across it - hopefully Amber won't object :D
My hubby saw the card and said I needed to put another sentiment on it because "friend" on a card with a heart just didn't go together. I must admit it crossed my mind, but after trying sentiment after sentiment, this was the one that worked, and we females can give hearts to friends any time so I think it will stay LOL!
Have a fabulous weekend! Kids' Science Fair projects are going to be d-o-n-e, done and mounted on their display boards by the end of this weekend - yeah!!!
