Another Verve Sketch


I finished the Verve sketch challenges for this month! I love that there is a sketch provided, and you are given an additional twist to fulfill as a requirement. If you're looking for a fun sketch challenge, come check it out here. I got a few Verve sets back before the holidays. Last week's challenge was the birthday twist, and I sure wished that I had their cupcake set to use. While it's not required to use Verve stamps, I've had my eye on that cupcake set for a while, and just knew it would have been fun to use on the birthday twist sketch. Anyway, the twist this week was to only use one kind of embellishment; not ribbons and brads and flowers, like sometimes ends up happening. I went with these fun little brads, because I thought that the color went really well. I made my card 4 1/4" square, and really was wishing I had some circle nesties so I could have made a fun mat for my circle paper. See, the wish list again!!! Have a great Saturday, we are off to celebrate my husband's grandmother's 95th birthday.
