Viva La Verve - May Week 2 Sketch

VLV May 2015 Week 2 photo VLVMay15Wk2pic.jpg

Today's Viva La Verve sketch is brought to us by Anya.  Due to my mess up earlier this week, I needed to make another Mother's Day card and this sketch was perfect.

I still had MME's In Bloom on my desk (one of my all time favorite paper pads) so I dug into it once again to make this card for my mom for Mother's Day.

The sentiment is from Verve's Button Best and I couldn't resist using this gorgeous flower from Dream Big once again and pairing it with this fabulous leaf from In Bloom. Best part is they have matching dies: Elegant Leaf and Scalloped Flower die.  A few embellishments and my Mother's Day card is done and ready to be given to mom :)

For more inspiration using this week's sketch, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog.

Have a great day and thank for popping by today!
