Thinking of You ~ Viva La Verve September Sketch

Good morning, beautiful!! Isn't that lovely to hear? It's what I get to hear every morning from my dh. He's gone for a few days working out of town so I have a quiet house before all the hoopla of next week starts. This card is for the Viva La Verve's first September sketch. The twist is to use "little round things." This Bella image was sitting on my desk with a few others. I had stamped and coloured a few to save time but hadn't used them all. I thought Pregabella would be perfect for the twist since she has a "little round belly." LOL :) The other round things are the embossed swiss dots, the round edge punch, the circles and all the bling. I was only going to do the top row of silver pearls, but then the card looked top heavy, so I went all the way around the scallops. It was either a very good idea or way over the top. But, hey! Bling is best! I think it's rather eye catching. Have a wonderful weekend, all you beautiful blog buddies :)

I love the pregnant twist! What a clever idea! I have this sketch saved on my computer. Hopefully I'll have some time to play in the next day or two. School starts on Tuesday for our district, with kiddos. I'm actually excited now, and much less stressed. Phew!

Amazing card, Maureen!!
