Verve October Week 3



In honor of Verve's Diva Jackie Pedro becoming a Dirty Girl on SCS, the Verve challenge this week was to CASE (copy and share everything) one of her cards.

I just love Jackie's work and had so much fun scrolling through her SCS gallery.  In the end, I chose this card.

In keeping with my Verve flower addiction, I pulled out my Dream Big flower set and layered away :)  I switched the colour of the flower and the side the leaves were on, as well as the embossed back ground pattern. The sentiment is from the Because of You set and I switched it to an oval shape and matted it white on white with the scalloped oval punch.

Had so much fun casing this card, I just may have to go back and do another one LOL!

As always, thanks or stopping by.  Hope you have a fabulous day!




What's In It? 
Stamps:  (Verve) Dream Big, Because Of You
Paper:  Black, White
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss
Accessories:  Diamonds in the Rough Embossing Folder, PTI Large Scallop Die, 5/8" Pink Satin Ribbon, Stampin' Up Large Oval and Scalloped Oval Punches, Black Button, Glue Dot, Dimensionals
