Wishing You a Joyful Day

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a card I made from this week's Viva La Verve sketch. My mojo had been gone for so long that sketch challenges have been just the thing to help me get going again!


Here's the fabulous sketch I followed:

Here's my take. It almost looks like it could be a Thanksgiving card!

Currently, I have some of my brown, yellow, and green scraps out on my craft table.  I have been trying to use them on my projects this week.  I also used a cute little tag that my bloggy friend, Karen, sent me with some other sweet things last year.  Thanks so much, Karen!!  I am really *tryyyyyyyyy-ing* to use things from my scraps and stash!!  Doesn't this tag go perfectly with the sketch and these scrap colors???  LOVE it.

I used another sentiment from my Inky Antics - Script Sentiments #1.  I am just loving this set!!  I thought about putting the tag at a jaunty angle for this card, but decided to follow the sketch on keeping horizontal.  Instead, I put the big sparkling metallic gold bow at an angle.  I love this webby ribbon because it springs back into shape even after being squished into an envelope.  Yay!!!

Other supplies used on this card include:
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and Tea Dye
Versafine Ink in Olympia Green
Doily and scraps from stash

I hope you enjoyed my card!  I will post my 100 follower giveaway with a picture of my prizes in the next 3 or 4 days, so be watching!!

  5. Oooh, what a great take on the sketch and that webby ribbon is so pretty and SO fun! A bow that springs back to shape after being in the envelope is a bonus for any card maker. I always love a gorgeous vintage, distressed card design so this one is a real favorite. Doily (check), inked edges (check), tag (check), sweet sentiment with gorgeous font (check), glitzy bow (double-check)!
