Hello all! I squeezed in some time this weekend to ink up some Verve stamps that I bought last month. Yeah, I know, it took me that long to ink up new stamps? I've been a bit busy and so I literally used scraps for some of the elements on these challenge pieces. I had embossed some red paper two weeks ago and was waiting for the right card. Then I colored one of the new Verve wreaths but hadn't found a home for it. So here are my scrap creations.
Challenge 3: Embellish with V-E-R-V-E
Man, coming up with a V was difficult! Actually impossible for me. LOL So the challenge was to use embellishments that begin with each letter of the word Verve using as many or little. My letters are E-embossing folder and powder and R-ribbon. I loved where this card was going so I stopped before I tried to work in a Violet this or a Vellum that. The ribbon on the bottom is the prettiest I've come across in a long time. It's a slight green and gold ribbon that I found at Big Lots for $1.50 and the next project uses a holiday paper pack by Petal Press that I got for $2.00. You can't beat that!
