Text Notes I Love you

VLV June Week 1 photo VLVJuneWk1picA.jpg

Amber created this wonderful sketch that will let you go to town with layers and papers.  If it intimidates you, just break it down element by element and you'll do just fine :)

I once again dove into MME's In Bloom paper pad - can't put this one down!  With all the blending papers I needed a pop of colour - enter the big red rose!  Toned it down a bit with the two coral ones beside it and some yellow ribbon.

Remember, there is a great prize if you complete all the Verve sketches in any given month!   You will be entered in a random draw to win $100 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store!  Here is a link to the Verve forum on SCS for all the challenge details.

What a stunning card Marisa! Love that bright pop of color of the rose against the muted tones of the paper! I'd love to know how you make your bows with the button and twine on top come out so perfectly!

Oh, this is so soft and pretty with these beautiful papers. Gorgeous rolled Roses. I like the grey leaves as they compliment the muted tones of these papers so well and let the roses take front and center stage.
