Happy Saturday!  I have a Verve card  to share today using this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 207.  For my card, I am using Verve's Sunny Days, Swan Song, and Hope Perches Plain Jane stamp sets.   I layered some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Collection designer papers for each of the panels and the background.  I stitched and ink distressed.  I used the smaller sprig image from the Sunny Days set along with Verve's Leafy Sprigs die.    I layered a couple Spellbinder's petite ovals for the focal image and quote.  I added my bow and a few touches of buttons to finish the card.  I must admit that this sketch was a bit tricky for me.  I had to position the front panel so that my birds and pennants still showed on the skewed panels. 

 This card is also for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Challenge.  I used the same colors, but focused on different values of the shades.  I added buttons, pennant, stitching, and birds along with different patterns and textures.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

I am playing along with a few other blog challenges as well!

  1. This sketch threw me for a tail spin LOL! I have pretty well mastered dealing with one skewed panel, but two is a bit much, especially after not stamping much for the past few weeks. So...I will live vicariously through your gorgeous creations :) Fabulous card!

  2. Wow stunning!! Just love that sketch and the way you have used it!! Those stamps are gorgeous too!
