Inkspirations Colour Challenge #82

Verve

Keesh has come up with a delightful colour combo once again.  When I first saw the colour combination, a masculine card came to mind so that is what I went with.  I combine it with Jen's August SFTYY and created a Verve Sneak Peek card.  Gotta love a three-for card :)  I had great fun creating this card and think I'll use it for hubby's birthday in September or keep it in my stash for when he needs a pick me up.

Can I tell you how much I LOVE these new dies and stamps from Verve!!  Oh my!!  Julee has totally out done herself this time round.  I used the Tagged Rectangle and I Heart U die sets along with the tag sentiment from Tag Time.  If you have missed out on the sneak peeks this week and/or just found out about tonite's release party being held on the Verve Forum over at SCS, just head on over to the Verve Blog for all the details. You could win some of the new sets :)   Needless to say, I'm booked tonite LOL!

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
