Amber has created a fun sketch this week and a great opportunity to work with a diagonal. I went for some funky background paper to step outside my box to mix things up a bit and I think the paper won LOL!
I'm far from thrilled with the card, but am posting the good the bad and the ugly here to keep things real. Sometimes things just don't come together the way you want them to and you have to live with it -- I'm trying to in this case, but it's hard! I could have tossed it, but then that would be total defeat and darn if I will let some paper beat me LOL! I know, it's as sad statement when I am fighting inanimate objects that aren't a Facebook game. Yah....
Moving on....I had fun using this new to me cupcake image from Verve's Carpe Cupcake set. I paired it with a sentiment from Birthday Phrases, a die from Flag It for the sentiment, and the Pennant Trim die for a little "oomph".
Now it's your turn. Complete all the VLV sketches in August and you will be entered to win a $100 gift certificate to Verve Stamps. Plus, Verve is having their six year Anniversary Sale this month which allows you to enjoy 10% - 50% off their stamps and dies!! A great way to chip away at your wish list!
Thanks for popping by and I'll be back tomorrow with my Just Us Girls card.
