That being said, it felt wonderful to get inky again, especially since I wanted to use a sentiment from Verve's Text Notes which my wonderful blogging buddy and new Verve Diva, Maureen, gave me for my birthday. The quote I wanted to use needed a horizontal panel so I flipped the sketch and am quite happy with how it turned out.
I paired the sketch with this week's Curtain Call colour challenge. It has been forever since I've played along (said hanging my head in shame) but these colours were screaming loudly at me so I jumped at the chance to combine the challenges.
Just love this Verve flower image and used it to frame the sentiment. I added some black accents to the mix to make things pop a bit (hope that's okay, Stacey...) and am quite happy with the outcome. The quote is a bit hard to read in the picture so here is what it says: "A cheerful friend is like a sunny day, spreading brightness all around".
The rest of the Design Team has some great inspiration to get you going on this week's sketch.
In addition, each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog. We'd love to see your card featured, so come and join the fun this week :)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Rain is back in the forecase - ugh!! - so that means, watching my son's soccer game in the rain, frizzy hair from all the dampness, and many thoughts of spring LOL. However, I sure did enjoy the four days of glorious sunshine we got earlier this week (as you can see in the background of my picture above).
