Sorry, had to throw in a little Schumann. That's for you, Becky! The English translation (according to WikiAnswers-I totally can't remember it) is "you raise me lovingly above myself, my good spirit, my better self." Back in the day, I could sing the HECK out of this song! *wink*
Ok, on to the good stuff...
There's a new challenge on the Verve Blog! Julee picked out these gorgeous pillows as an inspiration challenge. Not only for the designers, but for you guys as well! And there's a PRIZE!! You can find all the deets in my post on the Verve Blog -->HERE<--.
Aren't those fun? I have been working with blue a lot lately, so I pulled out the yellow and decided to make a kind of monochromatic card. Then I decided to do a set of 3x3 mini cards. I like lots of throw pillows on my couch, so why not lots of little cards? *grin*
I stamped the leaves in Tea Stain Distress Ink around the edges of the white layer. Then I sponged and stitched the layer to the Saffron card base, which also made a nice little border. The large flower from Thankful Blossoms was stamped (also in Tea Stain) on Barely Banana cardstock, cut out, and then popped up on dimensionals. I also highlighted a little with my White Glaze pen. The final touch was the sentiment (from Thoughtful Florals) stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. A fun and easy little gift set!
So grab your stamps and get your Verve on! And make sure you check the Verve blog for the next couple weeks for the rest of the Design Team's take on this challenge.
