Viva la Verve, Birthday Wishes!

IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!! Yahoo! Anyone else looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend? I am!
Are you going to carve some time our for stamping in your weekend? A weekend wouldn't be complete without a little crafty time;) Would you like a challenge to jumpstart your mojo? How about playing along with our Viva la Verve sketch challenge! 

Andrea came up with this fun little CAS beauty and I hope you play along!
Here's my card using a few different goodies from Verve:

Ooooh I had so much fun creating this card! When I saw Andrea's sketch, I knew this is what I wanted to do and it came together just right! 

I cut a butterfly using the All Aflutter die out of the white cardstock and used the negative as my focal point. The background strips are simply strips of cardstock scraps I had laying around. I stamped the sentiment (from Making a Statement) in black ink, and added some buttons and twine. I sewed some zigzags on the strips for a little added interest. The corner dies are from MFT, I just can't resist using then on EVERYTHING:) The flourishes you see are from Thankful Accents! Those are fun little stamps to kind of dress up a card and add some surprising details:)

Okay, well come play along with us in the Verve Forums! Can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!
