Sounds of the rude world, heard in the day....lulled by the moonlight have all passed away

See, whoever wrote "Beautiful Dreamer" had loud tweeting birds outside their window too! *grin*

I have been waiting and waiting to share this card with you...it seems like forever! This is a little preview of one of the sets Verve is releasing on Friday. It's called Floral Whimsy, and I love it because of this quote! Yall know how I'm a sucker for quotes, and good fonts...and this set has both, plus a butterfly and some flowers to boot! Could it get any better?

I made this card the day this set landed on my doorstep...I just couldn't wait. It kind of took on a life of its own and came together, which is how most of my favorite cards are made.

The butterflies were stamped onto white cardstock and colored with my Copic markers. Then I cut them out and adhered them to the white strip (on which I stamped another row of butterflies) with dimensionals. The bottom of the black panel is pierced with my paper piercer and mat pack, and then I added a little strip of Pomegranate cardstock and some Wasabi ribbon to finish it off. I like the soft look that the rounded corners add.

To see more projects with this set, check out the Verve Blog. We will also be drawing from the comments to win this set (and the other releases!) so make sure you check back every day this week! Have a good one!
