Blessed

VLVJan2013

Diva Charmaine came up with this wonderful CAS design for this week's Verve sketch.

Since I popped over the line today to pick up new stamping goodies (compliments of some birthday money - happy sigh), I just "had" to initiate some of it wink, wink :)

I used PTI's word die and linen impression plate (which as been on my wish list forever!).  Then I stamped this fabulous Verve butterfly and had to fussy cut it as I don't have the matching die - yet LOL!  Twinkling H2O's provided my method of colouring and I used green so I could enter this week's Play Date Cafe challenge to use black, shite and a splash of green on a card.  The butterfly seemed a bit lonely up there all by itself, so a trail of half pearls solved that issue.  Think this is about as CAS as I can get :)

Now the waiting game begins - who will be the lucky winner of a $100 Verve gift certificate.  I'd be happy to comply and call it a belated birthday gift!!

Wishing you a wonderful day :)

 

What's In It?  
Stamps:   Blue Skies (Verve)
Paper: Black and White
Ink: Black
Accessories:  Twinkling H2O's, Word Die (PTI), Linen Impression Plate (PTI), Black Half Pearls, Dimensionals
