Hellllloooo! How is everybody today? I think I saw the sun today for like 3 hours, which is more than I can say for the past two weeks! We are getting a TON of rain lately, but it IS rainy season on Okinawa, so I guess I should be surprised;)
I had today off so I spend awhile in the stamping room to create a card for this weeks Viva la Verve! challenge! Schmoopy (we're both huge Seinfeld fans!), I mean Maureen, is the hostess this week, and she came up with a super fun sketch!
I always love Moe's sketches, she likes to bunch elements up and I absolutely love that as well! Here's my card, which is also the card I'm sending to my Mom for Mother's Day (yes, I'm quite aware of how late I am, lol! What can I say, I'm a cardmaker and we're always the worst, right? LOL!)
I used more of my beloved "Portrait" papers from Crate Paper! I am loving this pattern in particular! All the colors and beautiful flowers just make me happy! Okay, so I used a couple new stamp sets for this card. The Elegant Leaves die and the matching leaves from "Bloom and Grow" and the sentiments from "Love Deepens". I clear embossed the leaves on the Elegant Leaves die cut, I just love how that looks!
I really wanted to use one of my real doilies on this card, but they were white and my card is cream, so it wouldn't work. No worries, I have this fun doily die from PTI that does just the trick;) I stamped the sentiment on a tag cut with Verve's "Sweet Scallop Tag" die and attached it with some ribbon and twine.
Here's the inside...
