So Glad We're Friends ~ Viva La Verve

Good evening all! The title of this post is exactly how I feel about each and every one of you {insert big smile here!}. I have been busy these past few days in the studio and am finally getting a card posted. I had a fun time at the Verve release last night and have 4 new sets and a plain jane coming my way in a few days! Today's card is for the Viva La Verve September Sketch #4. The clever twist this week is to make a black and white card. Sounds easy, no worrying about which colours to use. Well, I was wrong. I had to swap out a lot of black and white dp until I got the right one to go underneath the fleur de lis stamped panel. I was trying to get enough contrast with the different panels so each one would stand out. Not easy on a 2 coloured card. I really wanted to make the fleur de lis work on this one and am happy with the results. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx and I got great coverage. It's a great black pad if you're looking for one. I also wanted to use a slightly different shape for the sentiment so went to my Labels 2 nestabilities. A few pearls and a black ribbon and I was happy with the results. Hope you are having a wonderful evening in your part of the world :)

What's in it?

Stamps: verve kindred spirits, SU best yet

Paper: PTI white, black, bitty dots dp

Ink: Versafine onyx

Accessories: cuttlebug ef, labels 2 nestabilities, rectangle nestabilities, pearls, satin ribbon

That turned out gorgeous, Maureen! You really rocked the black & white. The pearls are a perfect addition and the swiss dots works wonders with the paper. Another stunner! I'm so bummed that I missed out on the Verve party. I suspect I'm going to be placing an order right away, too. LOL

Is this with your additional lights? Looks great!

Great take on the sketch. It's been fun seeing how many B & W DPs are out there as well as self created ones! Nicely done and I'm thankful for you too :D (((hugs)))

Forgot to mention in your next post that I love DWTS as well! I would love to be on that show and learn how to ballroom dance! Looking forward to comparing notes.
