Mojo 175-True Love Story

Hello! How are you today, my friends? I had a WHOLE day of crafting today and it was FABBY! I worked on alot of preview cards and my Diva Dare for tomorrow (have you been visiting the Verve blog and checking out all the Diva Dares so far? Check 'em out HERE!), and then tackled this week's Mojo Monday sketch!


Here's my card using Love Story by Verve Stamps!


I didn't have very good lighting today, but did my best in Photoshop, lol! Instead of that horizontal piece going UNDER the circle, I wanted to use Vellum and stamp my sentiment on it, so I added it to the top of the circle! I also didn't know how I was going to attach it and decided on brads:) I think this may be the card I give Billy for Valentine's Day!


This was a super fun sketch! I may try another one and actually go 100% by the sketch, if I'm feelin' crazy;)

So I have a secret...which many of you may also share...

I got my box from Emma's Paperie today and had ordered a BUTT LOAD of new paper! I'm IN LOVE with all the new Kaiser paper pads! They are seriously amazing and also have four pages of punch out elements like borders, frames, tags, etc...! To me, they're kinda the new BG;)

I don't know where I'll put all this paper though, I'm running out of room!!

Thanks for stopping  by today! I'll be back tomorrow with more VERVE!!!

Beautiful card, Amber...co classically elegant.
And I'm jealous of all that paper! When I first saw the picture, I thought you had won it! Doesn't matter really, you have it and you get to PLAY with it! Lucky girl...HAVE FUN!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this card hon! That strip of vellum is so cool and I love all the dots! Your paper stash just made me feel whole lot better. I just started going through all my paper sorting it out, makes me feel better to see someone else with the same affliction, lol!
