Fabulous Just The Way You Are
CAS sketch, and a great one to be able to create a background panel with.
Since my Verve stamps were still out on my desk, I just had to use them again LOL! This is my all time favorite release by Julee and I am still madly in love with all these fabulous Verve flowers (just in case you hadn't noticed) as well as the wonderful sentiments that go with the sets.
Out came Great Friend, and I used the smallest flower outline image to make the background panel using last week's Curtain Call colours as they are fabulous flower colours. I mated the flower panel in black and carried it over to the black scallops down the side (love those PTI scallop dies!). I embossed the white background panel with the Nat embossing folder Kathy Jones sent me (still loving it, Kathy - thanks again!) and the sentiment is from Love's Bloom (another fabulous Verve font). I scalloped the ends of the sentiment panel so they tied in with the side scallops, added some black half pearls on a few of the flowers and finished things off with a red butterfly for a pop of colour.
Have another idea peculating in my mind for this layout and hope to be able to get to it today :) However, my craft room desperately needs some clean up first - oh the chores one must do in order to be able to stamp LOL! Have a fabulous day!
