Blossom ~ Viva La Verve Sketch #3

This is so funny...when I went to post this picture, I couldn't find it!! LOL I looked everywhere in my picture files and even in the recycle bin...nothing!! So I had to get it off my SCS gallery :) Good thing it was there! This card is for the weekly Viva La Verve Challenge. Amber's twist this week is to use fabric. My sister who quilts gave me a bag of fabric pieces last month and I was drawn to this one right away. It's a very close match to the old SU In Colour Vintage Violet. I love how it contrasts with More Mustard. My sewing is WAY off, uh, I mean VERY whimsical. I think I should have just stitched the fabric before adhering it to the cardstock...HELP, Melisa!! It got a little wrinkly on me. I hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by :)

What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Plain Jane, SU by definition
Ink: SU vintage violet, close to cocoa
Paper: SU vintage violet, more mustard, choc chip, kraft, Autumn Vine dp; PTI cream
Accessories: button, SU birds and blooms die and linen thread; silver pearls; satin ribbon, fabric; stitching

Oooohhh - such fabulous colors and your stitching is wonderful, Maureen. Always our own worst critics. I love what you've done with this card - the sentiment is a fave and you've always got the perfect touches (flower/button/ribbon). How do you get your bows so darn perfect?!

No packing yet, but I'm sure looking forward to five days off work!!

Love the colours and the fabric works wonderfully. I don't see any wrinkles. Great flower die and nice bling.
