For You, Great Friend

Did you all like that clean-and-simple detour yesterday? I thought I'd give you a totally different look at the same stamp set as yesterday, Verve's new Great Friend. For this card, I used the same three flowers as yesterday, but this time I stamped them onto designer paper, cut them out, and layered them for dimension. I also distressed the flower layers with ink and crumpling. A totally different look -- love the versatility!

Join the Verve Divas tonight for our release party, beginning at 8 pm EST HERE in the Verve Forum. Hope to chat with some of you then! In the meantime, have a great Friday!

Paper: Papertrey Rustic Cream, 7Gypsies Gypsy Market dp
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Anique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks

GASP! I loved your clean & simple modern look yesterday, but I just {heart} those distressed flowers and the absolutely adorable ruffled trim today. And to pull off both those styles so fabulously... well, you're nothing short of amazing, Amy!
