Viva la Verve - June Week 1 Sketch

The path to this card was slightly different to my normal venture into challenge cards. Some years ago I had purchased three Verve stamp sets and I think I used just one of them before losing my craft room for two years. Last weekend, I visited Verve's website, Julee's Blog, Poetic Artistry and the designer's blogs to see what was being created with their stamps. What a fabulous feast of cards! What I loved most.......... the layers!! AND some distressing, SIGH!!!!

So here I am joining in Viva La Verve Challenge for the first time. I don't do many sketch based challenges, but I must say when you are layering, having a plan is very helpful.

Here is the sketch.

I have used Verve Stamp 'Hope Blooms'  for the flower.
The circle is Lil' Inker, 'Stitched Circles'.
Black leaves are MFT 'Leaf Greenery' 
'Love' MFT
'...you so much' SSS Flower Friends
DP Recollections Prince Charming and an old Basic Grey 

 Thanks for dropping in :-)

This is fabulous, Karen! The layers all work so well together and I love that sentiment.
