Verve Release Sketch #4

Julee is hitting all my weak areas with her sketches for the release this Friday LOL!  Off angle panels and I don't get along well at all -- what can I say, I'm a bit anal LOL!  Kept hearing Amber's words, "embrace the off-angle panel, make it your friend".  So I took a deep breath and went to work.

I saw Stacey layer this flower on her card here and I just had to make one myself as I just loved it!!   Actually, yesterday I made a card very similar to this one which I haven't posted yet so this one stole the show first LOL! 

This is a go to colour combo for me as I just love these colours together.  That being said, I am very sad to see Brocade Blue retiring and will have to make sure I stock up before it's gone for good!

The flower is framed with Label 4 Nesties and the stem is from Verve's Petals and Stems set, which is still one of my favorite Verve sets.  The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.  

Three challenges down and only two to go - yeah!!  Back soon with the next one.

What's In It?
Stamps:  (Verve) Petals and Stems
Paper:  Brocade Blue, Pretty in Pink
Ink:  Sage Shadow

It really surprises me when you say that you struggle with anything because you've always rocked it! Beautiful flower and use of your nesties. Love the button addition!
