Viva La Verve- Week #3 (January 14,,2010)

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday! Every Friday there is a Viva La Verve Sketch that will be hosted by a different Verve Diva and today the loveliest Tosh is hosting the VLV challenge with this lovely sketch! I love tilted panels (as some of you know ;) and I couldn't wait to play along :) One of my sweet friends just had a little baby boy this week (yay!) and I loved getting peeks of his sweet cheeks on the pictures that they sent and couldn't wait to make a special card for them!

I used the sweet sentiments from the To The Moon stamp set which has the sweetest little baby stamps and sweetest sentiments and also I used one of the darling little Plain Janes of this cutie: Emery, who I think is one adorable Elephant! I wanted to have Emery hold the heart, so I cut is arms out a little bit so that he seems to be holding the heart:

Here is a close up of Emery and the I used the heart from the Love Notes stamp set and cut out the tag using the Sweet Scallop Tag. I added a little ribbon embellishment and wound some twine through their and attached a little tag to the bottom of it with the sentiment: Sweet Little Baby:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Alphabet Soup (MME) and cardstock from PTI
Stamps: Emery (Plain Jane), Love Notes, To The Moon stamp sets from Verve Stamps
Inks: Tuxedo Black ink and Bahama Blue ink
A Cut Above Verve Dies: Sweet Scallop Tag die
Accessories: Eyelets (Making Memories), twine, liquid pearls, dimensionals, ribbon from stash, red lined tape and copics

I loved making this card for this tiny wee baby who has just made his appearance! I can't wait to hold him when they come next time into town - but in the meantime I am excited to send them a little card from all of us! :)
