A Cheerful Friend


I have one more Verve card from last week's release that I haven't shared here yet. This one uses a sentiment from the new set, Text Objects. The cloud and sun paper, along with the yellow pompom trim, are from My Mind's Eye's True Blue Fine & Dandy collection. The dry embossing was done with the "Rays" folder from Tim Holtz's Alterations line.



The sun accent is die-cut from thin cork using My Favorite Things' Sunshine Die-namics. The swirl is just a piece of coiled yellow embroidery floss that I stitched onto the cork using taupe thread.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
