It is that time of month again - yes, it is time for the Verve release and there is a contest where you can win the whole release! Last month was the first time I participated, so I don't know if they are always like this, but there are 5 sketches posted in the Verve forum on SCS HERE and you have until a certain time on Friday to post all of your cards. There is a winner for each sketch challenge and a Grand Prize winner from those who complete all of the sketch challenges (I don't know why I am telling all of you this - that just means more competition! HA HA!) My goal is to complete all 5! Here are my first two:
This first one makes me so happy! I just love how it turned out and it was so simple because the background is one piece of DP!
Stamps:Up and Up and Away, sentiment from All About You - Verve
Paper: DCWV Mi Casa, Chocolate Chip, PTI White
Ink: Antique Linen Distress Ink, Chocolate Chip Craft
Misc: Brads, Clear Embossing Powder
For my second card I decided to try the color challenge this week on SCS - Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral and (optional) Always Artichoke. I have to say, Cameo Coral and I are not on friendly terms. I really tried to make peace with this card but I don't think we will ever truly get along!! And why do my bows always look crooked in my pictures! They never look that way to me until I have posted them on the blog!! AAagh!
Stamps: Bountiful Backgrounds - Verve
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Bravo Burgundy Craft
Misc: BB Ribbon, Liquid Pearls, Taylors Tiny Twinkles, Clear Embossing Powder.
And last but certainly not least, I am not sure how many of you who read my blog also read Amy's - A Thousand Sheets of Paper. (If you don't you really should - she is AMAZINGLY talented!!) If you do then you have probably seen her wonderful Fairies? They are becoming rubber!! She has the details HERE along with a chance to win some of your very own!! You really should go check it out if you haven't already!
Thanks for your visit! I hope your day is Fantastic!!
