This week began with scurrying to get packed to go to a wedding this weekend (I am telling you, I have been to more weddings in the last 3 weeks than all of last year!) - but first I wanted to play along with the Viva La Verve challenge for this week, which I am also hosting :) I hope you like the sketch (no skewed panels! ;) and will play along with us - please check out more about the details of how you can win some yummy Verve by playing along with all the Verve sketches this month - over at the VLV thread week 3 over at Splitcoaststampers! Here is this week's sketch and I used it to make a special birthday card for one of my dear friend's one year old baby! I used one of my favorite stamp sets: "To The Moon" from Verve stamps that has THE cutest little animals with the sweetest sentiments. I loved going all girly with the sentiment: "sugar and spice and everything nice" with the sweet little bear holding a hear at the bottom as one of the panels.
Have you ever made a card and just loved each part of the process? I think somehow making this card for my friend and thinking of her wee one - I just loved every part of making this card. I used the Be Mine papers from Echo Park and tried to keep it all girly and soft and pink - but added a little black for contrast and of course some liquid pearls and a little rosette :)
Paper: Be Mine from Echo Park papers
Stamps: To the Moon from Verve Stamps
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Ink Black and copics
Accessories: MS edger punch, liquid pearls, bling from Want 2 Scrap, ribbon from MME, rosette (Timholtz) button from PTI with the PTI twine, bling, chunky glitter from MS, Spellbinders, sponger and dimensionals.
I love how this came out - and can't wait to see what you come up! I love the three panels at the bottom because they can be either different pieces of paper, or sentiments or these cute little animals! :) Please check out all the happenings over at the VLV thread and join in on the fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Off to a fun wedding packed weekend!
(with all these weddings this month -
I have a feeling that I will be making more
of these baby cards next year ;)
Have a great weekend and
