Accent Notes Wreath

 
When I first say Karen's sketch this weekend, this Verve Accent Notes set was the first thing that popped into my mind.  It was my stamp set of choice for my Mojo Monday win last month.  Since it just arrived last week, it was a perfect opportunity to "smell some new Verve" (inside joke on the Verve Forum - many of us love the smell of the new stamps when they are opened) and ink it up.

Time was tight today, so I kept things nice and simple.  I stamped the wreath and added black half pearls to the dots on it.  Then I added the sentiment and the three black pearls under it.  I used my Nesties to cut out the circle and scalloped circle and matted it on to this purple which is quite close to Almost Amethyst.  The purple panel needed something so I pulled out my trusty Swiss Dots embossing folder.  A strip of scalloped black down the side, a bit more matting and I was good to go.

Hope you are having a good Monday.  Thanks for dropping by today :D
