He Has Made Everything Beautiful




I'm happily humming away in my stamp room today, but wanted to quickly pop in with another peek at one of the new Plain Jane Scripture stamps that Verve will be releasing this Friday - Ecclesiastes 3:11.

I used Verve's World Card Making Day/Release Week Sketch Challenge #2:


The papers are from Prima's Fairy Flora collection. The punched border is new to me -- Martha Stewart's Swirling Lace (an around the page border and corner combo). The ovals are Spellbinders die-cuts that have been antiqued a little with Distress Inks. Other embellishments: crinkled seam binding, Prima mini roses, paper piercing, and Dew Drops.

[ETA: Ooops, forgot to link to the challenge. All five sketch challenges are posted HERE on the Verve blog. Enter individual sketches for chances to win or enter all five for a chance at the grand prize! Good luck to you!]

Thanks for visiting!
