Get Well ~ Verve Anniversary Sketch

I wanted to share another card I made for Verve's Anniversary last week. This was the fifth sketch that Julee posted. I was very intimidated with the circles at first but then thought about my new patterned paper I bought last week on the girls' road trip :) I added stitching and embossing as I love the texture it adds without overdoing it. The cork birdie was a hit (idea from Dawn McVey awhile back) as was the pink dp. I finished off with the gorgeous PTI satin ribbon and sentiment from the Mega Mixed Messages set. It even made Julee say it made her "heart all aflutter" in my SCS gallery :)

I went to see The Time Traveler's Wife last night...excellent! I had heard mixed reviews, but I loved it. I usually like to read the book first, but wasn't able to. The Lovely Bones is coming out soon and a friend just lent me the book so I can read it first. Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. Smiles to everyone!!

Love your paper mix. I think only two are from the same collection? The bird is beautiful.
