Viva La Verve Butterfly Birthday
If you have not been playing along with this month's Viva La Verve sketches, there's still time before the deadline on Thursday (April 30). But hurry, there are FIVE sketches this month! What are Viva La Verve sketches? Each week, Verve Diva Amber Hight posts a new sketch (with a twist) in the Verve Forum on SCS, and if you complete all of the month's sketches, you can be entered into a drawing for the entire next Verve release. How's that for a prize?
I used the VLVAPR05 sketch (with a few extra layers and a misplaced sentiment - ooops!) for this birthday card. This week's twist is an easy one - make a spring card. The butterflies are from last month's Beautiful Kindness set, and the background pattern and sentiment are from this month's Wishful Elegance. The designer papers are from K&Co's Retro Florals Cardstock Pad.
Guess what?! It's also time for the next Verve Project Parade! Head over to the Verve Stamps blog to see what line leader Jen del Muro has cooked up for today. Our theme this month is "It's a Girl Thing - Celebrating the Women in Our Lives, and the parade will be going on through May 13. You're warmly invited to play along with us. Two random participants will receive $25 gift certificates to the Verve store.
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
