Viva la Verve! March Week 4 -- Kind Words

Hello chicks! I'm back today with a card for this week's Viva la Verve! sketch challenge:) This week, Jackie Pedro is our hostess and she came up with an AWESOME sketch for you! I really loved this one and can't wait to use it again:)


Click on the sketch to be taken to the challenge thread! There, you can find all the challenge details and rules:) If you play along with all five sketches this month, you'll be put into a drawing for Verve's WHOLE next month's stamp release...a prize WORTH playing for;)

Here's my card using Kind Words--


I stamped off the flowers from Kind Words once on scratch paper and then again on the sentiment panel, I wanted the flowers to be subdued and this is the best way to do that, then I stamped the sentiment on top! That sentiment panel is supposed to be tall and skinny but my sentiment was a bit too wide for that, I think this still resembles the sketch;) Another fun little detail I added was to stamp the largest flower center from Petals and Stems on the far right edge of the card, so it looks like scallops! I thought this was a fun little detail to add, seeing as I hate to leave white space, lol!

I wanted to make my card set up a bit flashy so I used some of the tissue paper (this PARTICULAR tissue paper was wrapped around some BRAND NEW STAMPS that will be released next week! Just WAIT until you see them:) Peeks start on Wednesday!!). I love the sparkles in the tissue paper, don't you? Julee always wraps each package with love, and I can think of nothing FUNNER to unwrap than some new Verve!

I hope you can play along with us this week! Like I said, click on the sketch above or HERE to be taken to the challenge thread! See you around chickies;)
