Viva la Verve

Hi everyone!  Hope your week is going well so far!  I found a pretty sketch at the Viva la Verve blog:

I never realized how much I depend on sketches to get me "going"!!  I needed a special birthday card, so I put this sketch to good use, using some papers from Petal Garden DSP and a pretty verse and image from Inky Antics:

I used a doily from my stash for the horizontal panel, and added some glimmer and white ribbons to hide the cut edge.  I stamped the verse and bird directly on to the DSP with Tangerine Tango ink, and added a birthday sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet in Pool Party:

I added another strip of that pretty DSP on the inside and another sentiment from Colorful Seasons:

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. I like the sketch and how you put it to use. Great job of tying everything together.

  2. So gorgeous, LeAnne! Fresh, bright, beautiful verse... and the inside sentiment is just wonderful! SO pretty!!

  3. This is so pretty! I love the paper and that stamp is perfect on them!. I don't use doilies enough and you always make them look so sweet!

  4. Beautiful card LeAnne. I love the scripture stamped on the pretty paper. The doily is a perfect touch. TFS

  5. Beautifully doen LeAnne, this is one amazing card!

  6. Love your card! The colors are beautiful and I love how you stamped the
    sentiment on the different papers. Very clever!

  7. Such a beautiful card, LeAnne! So glad you could join us for Viva la Verve!

  8. Love this! The patterned background paper is so pretty. May I ask what dies/ punches you used for the sentiment? It's layered up so perfectly :)
