A True Friend! Viva La Verve and MORE!

Happy Sunday!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  I made this card for this week's Viva La Verve(VLVJUL2011) sketch challenge.   Maureen(aka Moe) is this week's sketch host.  Moe has designed a fun sketch for us!   It was fun to the different papers to add to the sketch.   I chose to use some of My Mind's Eye designer papers For A Girl.  I really tried to stay as close to the sketch as possible.  I did have to turn my rectangle element alittle since I made it an little envy with a tag inside.  

I am using Verve's Hundred's HeartsText Objects, Sweet Scallop Tag, and New Mercies stamp sets.  I am also using Verve's Jotted Heart die, Sweet Scallop die, and Charming Oval dies(small oval for tiny tag).

Here is a close up of the pocket and the tag!  All pictures can be seen larger by clicking onto them.  I die cut the heart out of glitter cardstock.
