Botanical Blossoms Verve Style



This is going to be a good week for posting because I just now started my July Verve Forum challenges - eek!!  A little loss of sleep never hurt anyone right...LOL! 

This month Amber has chosen bathrooms as our inspiration room.  I chose this one because of all the white - you know how I love my white space :)   I was having a heck of a time with the second circle so I decided to flip the sketch so I could use a bow as the smaller circle in the sketch.  

I focused on the flowers and the pinks and greens (one of my favorite colour combinations).  Roses in Winter was my first thought but I decided against it and used Botanical Blooms instead.  Love this little two step set.  A few pink half pearls in the middles of the flowers added a little "umph" and the silver half  pearls as per the taps and legs on the bathtub.   Three down and one to go - yeah!

Thanks for visiting me today, your company is always appreciated :)   Have a fabulous day and I'll be back soon with another challenge card.

OMG, Marisa, this is sooo gorgeous!! Love your colors and the way you tweaked the sketch! I gave up on doing the July challenges for Amber after being on vacation the first week, creating like a mad woman for the DTGD challenges last week, plus redoing my dining room. Not enough energy to do it all. :-) I'll just sit back and admire your creations instead.

Oh, this is so beautiful, Marisa! You captured that gorgeous bathroom perfectly. I just realized that I have that SU set, too. I hardly recognized it--you used it so well it looked like a completely different stamp set to me at first LOL!! Love this in every way :)
