You're So Fabulous

Good morning, lovely friends :) Ah, the last weekday of my Spring Break. It's been so fun...traveling, shopping, card making...just fabulous :) Today's card is for the Viva La Verve sketch challenge. I was so tempted to go shabby chic again with some of the new pastel paper I purchased this week, but my new Verve stamps didn't come and I really wanted to use them with the new paper. {insert pout here}. A watched package never comes. So I flipped through some old patterned paper and was drawn to the blue and kraft colours, very similar to the inspiration photo. The blossom is made of vellum and the leaves are crimped, crumpled and inked a bit with chocolate chip :) YUM!! Okay...I'm off to do my taxes's not that big of a job so I should be able to have some more fun in the studio later :) Have a wonderful day and check out the Viva La Verve forum and join us for the chance to win some delicious Verve :)

What's in it?
Stamps: Verve bountiful borders
Ink: SU black, choc chip
Paper: PTI cream, kraft, black, linen vellum, SU vellum cardstock, SEI dp, script dp (craft supply)
Accessories: gemstones, brads, gingham ribbon, blossom and tag trio nestabilities, PTI button, linen thread, crimper

No you're fabulous :) I like the script dp and the vellum flower. I also like your ribbon treatment with the brads.

Enjoy your last few days off.

I loved this card over on Splitcoast, and I still love it here. The layers, the paper, everthing just looks so "complete." Beautifully done!
