Viva La Verve March Week 4 Sketch

 photo VLVMarWk4pic.jpg

This week's Viva La Verve sketch is brought to us by Anya.

I had great fun working with this sketch.  Pulled out this fabulous flower from Happy Place and the coordinating Happy Doodles Die Set.   The papers are from MME's The Sweetest Thing and I added a pop of colour by using Old Olive for my flowers.

Wanted a more feminine feel to the card so I punched the scalloped borders and added the Daisy Chain border down the side.  Still no ribbon so a tiny bow (aka: to fit the sentiment as in bow on the finger to remember something) added to the stem of the flower and I was finally satisfied with the card.

You don't need to use Verve Stamps to join in the challenge, but we love to see them if you have them.  All the challenge details are on the  Viva La Verve blog.  Would love to have you join in on the fun and the chance to win a $100 gift certificate to Verve  Stamps!

Great card! I was wondering how I could combine red and green without it looking too much like Christmas. Thank you for showing me how.
