So, it's Tuesday, which means it's time for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! Mercy cooked up another fabulous sketch for us this week, so check it out:
Fun, huh? I decided to combine it with Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14, and throw in a little Verve Sneak Preview just for fun. See whatcha think:
This card uses a new set from Verve called Express Yourself, which is so totally fun. The colors were just a smidge out of my comfort zone...I was cool until she threw in the Scarlet, which I don't have from Papertrey, so I substituted Bravo Burgundy, which I don't love. I cut and embossed a Cream panel with my Labels One Nestabilities, then added a mat of Elegant Eggplant. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, and the two flourishes were stamped in Raspberry Fizz. Then I stamped the polka dots (from Bountiful Backgrounds...shhh!!) in Bravo Burgundy on Cream cardstock, matted it with Raspberry Fizz, and added a Burgundy scalloped edge along the bottom.
A strip of Raspberry Fizz stitched grosgrain was wrapped around my polka dot panel, with the full intention of doing a bow/button combo. But then I found this fabulous Burgundy felt flower in my stash from Creative Cafe and decided to use it instead. I adhered that with Zip Dry, then added a cream button tied with crochet thread. The final touch was rounding the corners of my Kraft card base.
