Bright Side

Hello all! This card was made for the one of the Viva La Verve sketch challenges and contest for December. You can find all the details in the Verve forum over on SCS.

Stamps are from Verve; sentiment is from Flutter By and the flower is from Kind Words. I inked up the flowers with versamagic ink in Pink Grapefruit and Tea leaves. The sentiment was stamped first in Palette Noir and then I positioned the flowers around it. The new Labels 17 was used to cut out the shape. Love this new (or newer) set of labels!

Designer paper is DCWV Luxury stack and layered with green cardstock from Bazzill. Self adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft were used under the green grosgrain bow and as centers for the flowers.

Now that Christmas is over, I can get back into the swing of my normal routines! I didn't get any crafting or stamping goodies this year from Santa - nothing but clothes, but it was my choice. I have so many stamps and supplies now that I don't use. I've even been able to ignore (mostly) some of the awesome online after Christmas sales that are happening right now. I broke down and bought a few stamps at 50% off, but have not caved in to any new Christmas designer papers. Even though some of it is now almost 75% off - can't do it...I have a whole box full of stuff that I need to use up first! KWIM?

Have a safe and happy New Year!

Lovely card. The colors are so soft and look so nice together.

Not sure we can ever have enough paper?

How pretty - I love pink and green together - very soft and soothing. And klove the single pearl for the bling in each flower.
