I pulled out FTL #183 (an older sketch) which I absolutely love and literally copied the sketch to make my card. No need to ask me twice regarding a butterfly on a card ;) I combined the sketch with this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.
I just love making black and white cards with a splash of colour and with green being the splash this time round, I was one happy camper (for those who don't know, green is my favorite colour). Love the font of the "friend" sentiment from Verve's Because of You set and it was the perfect fit for the card. Not sure if the ribbon negates the CAS feel, so I'll take the lead from Julee and call it a CASS (clean and simple sort of ) card ;) Figure if the boss woman can do it, so can I wink, wink :)
All five Verve anniversary challenges are d-o-n-e, done. Yeah!! Now I just have to patiently wait (yah right!!) for the release party over at the SCS Verve forum at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time to see if I won the entire release (you'll hear me screaming from wherever you are in the world if that is the case LOL!) or if I won any of the new sets from all the sneak peek blog hops. Julee is always so generous with her prizes - thank you, Julee ((hugs)).
That being said, regardless of whether or not I win anything, some new Verve will definitely be crossing the border!! The question becomes, how much, wink, wink! Wish I had the budget to get it all, but since it's not an option, my trusty calculator is ready to crunch some numbers so I can get the most bang for my buck :) Upstairs computer is mine tonite, hubby is in charge of the kids (or as he says, my summer has been booked around this release) and I'm ready to party with the Verve Divas :) Is it release time yet LOL!
