Precious Little One


I made today's card for the new Viva La Verve January - Week 4 sketch challenge, hosted by Sankari. Remember, if you complete all four of the January Viva La Verve sketches, you can add yourself to the Sketch Champions thread, where a lucky participant will receive the entire next Verve release. The deadline for the January sketches is midnight, Thursday, January 27th. Winner announced on the 28th!

Here's Sankari's awesome sketch:



For my card, I pulled out Verve's awesome new To the Moon set and My Mind's Eye's Fine & Dandy True Blue paper collection. For the main image panel, I layered a Spellbinders Lacy Circle die-cut over a classic square over a Labels Sixteen. The giraffe has been colored with Copics and trimmed out. The pennants were cut from one of the True Blue patterns. And did I forget something on the sketch? Yes ... the three little circles in the bottom right. Oopsie! A few more white brads would have been perfect!

Thanks so much for popping in for a visit today. Hope your day is fantastic!
