Verve Release Sketch #5

In keeping with all the other release sketches thus far, the horizontal panels of this sketch gave me some's just not my week for sketches LOL!

I  started off wanting to use ribbon for the horizontal stripes, but then I noticed my Martha Stewart Daisy border punch sitting out on my desk and the idea of a daisy chain in lieu of ribbon came to mind.  I punched a border strip and then trimmed off the daisies so I'd have a daisy chain to use.  The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.

Four challenges down and only one to go :D  The last challenge is a colour challenge: green, turquoise and orange.   Bold Brights here I come LOL!

For those of you who have Friday night free and want to join in the fun, the Verve Beach Party Release is this Friday in the Verve Forum on SCS.  We'd love to have you  join us if you can make it.  It is always lots of fun and the Verve Diva's come up with some amazing samples using the new sets.

Off to tackle the last challenge - where there is the chance to win some free Verve there is a will and a way LOL!

Paper:  So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Brocade Blue

Where there's YOUR will, there's a way. Another gorgeous job of this sketch - can't wait to see what you come up with for the color challenge. I'm hoping I'll be able to play a little tonight.
