CAS Fan Flower

In the event you haven't heard, today is a Verve release day :D  That means some fun challenges that could win you some free Verve!!  All the challenges will be posted on the Verve Blog and you will have until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, March 8th to get them all done.  Julee will then announce the winners on Tuesday, March 9th.  In addition, if you want to practice your typing and speed reading skills, you can join us at the Verve Forum on SCS for a one hour release party starting at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.  The after party will involve a Verve Diva Blog Hop where the Divas will be strutting their stuff and showcasing the new Verve releases.

This is my card for the first Verve Release Challenge which was to make a CAS (clean and simple) flower card - score!!   I chose to go with a fan fold flower that was in one of the SU mini's last year.  Here is the SCS tutorial.  Just make sure you have a large glue dot to keep the flower together, especially when working with stiffer paper - don't ask me how I know LOL!

I used some DP for the flower and then pulled in a few of the colours from the DP for the rest of the card.  I punched a scalloped border on the left side and since the right side was a bit empty, I added a brown half pearl to each corner.  One down, four to go  :D  See you soon!

What's In It?

Paper:  So Saffron, Costco DPs
Accessories:  SU Scalloped Border Punch, Scor-Pal, Brown Half Pearls, Glue Dots

this is striking, Marisa! Wow! I haven't made one, but it really makes a card so special. That was fun yesterday...seeing the new sets :) I'm so glad those are the ones I'm getting...I love them all!! It also takes the pressure off doing all the challenges...don't think I'll get to any of work, finish reports, and prepost a few things for while we're away...oh and figure out this blog candy...I'm still going to give away the mittens...they are a nice souvenir...even Oprah was giving them away on her show...People can always regift them or sell them on ebay!!! LOL
