VLV June Week 3: Sugar and Spice!

Hi Everyone,

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 :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Be Mine from Echo Park papers
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 
thank you again for stopping by!
Sankari :)

How totally awesome! A really beautiful card. I love all of your hearts and the way you tucked the vellum one up on the right. Your flower is awesome too, and the dies, and that humongous button, and etc. LOL Beautiful
