Challenge deadline: Friday, August 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

I started this challenge by going through my patterned paper pads, looking for these colours.  I layered the papers this way and that until I found a layout I liked.  I stamped a double sentiment using the Take Note set, then watercoloured those sweet flowers from  Beautiful Things.  I die cut the leaves from some scrap patterned paper.  I wanted the leaves to face both ways so I die cut 2 facing one way on the paper, and then flipped the paper over (to the blank side) and cut 2 more.  Does that make sense?  Here's a photo of the results...


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!

GORGEOUS card, Maureen. You do a fabulous job with Verve's sweet stamps. I was so inspired by all the gorgeous cards on the Verve Blog and the lovely entries that I just had to play along. I love this color combination, and always enjoy pulling out my favorite Verve Stamps to use on my cards. Thanks for a fun blog hop.
