Verve Release Rewind Sketch for April


This card is for a male teacher my daughter had last year who will be leaving the school at the end of this year.  He is an amazing teacher who I have enjoyed getting to know and so wish he was staying so my son could have him next year.  

Since it is a masculine card, I kept it really simple.  Used my "masculine border punch" LOL, added a sailor's knot instead of ribbon, and used my nesties Labels 3 die to frame the sentiment.  I added a few blue half pearls and think they blend in well enough to be able to  keep things masculine :)

I have now finished all the Verve challenges for this release and  now just have to wait and see if my name gets drawn!  If you aren't busy on Friday night and want to join in on the fun, you can find the release party on this thread at SCS.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today :)




What's In It?
Stamps:  (Verve) Wishing You,  (Verve) Accent Notes
Paper:  Night of Navy, So Saffron, Brocade Blue
Accessories:  Labels 3 Nesties, Argyle Embossing Folder, Twine, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Dimensionals

Way to go, Marisa, you finished the 5 challenge cards and they're all beauties! I'll cross my fingers for you and you cross yours for me that we both win some free Verve - lol! You asked about the pics on the SCS gallery...I don't know what to suggest other than contacting one of the mods (? Lydia). I haven't noticed any problem with my posting. Has anyone messed with your pixel settings on your computer? I know my son had to fix mine one time on my old computer. Usually when I have a computer question, I ask a kid! :-)

Wonderful masculine card, Marisa!!! It does take some planning and thinking...no ribbon, no frills...no flowers...okay, yeah!!! You're done!!! We are having a beautiful sunny morning and....I may have big news about changing schools next year...I've been wanting to for 3 years and it's in the same neighbourhood as our lot :) There's a message for me at the office so I'm waiting for the callback!! You are the first person who knows!!! I had to tell someone!!! LOL Have a wonderful day :)
