This Hope! VLV Weekly Sketch!

Happy Friday!  It is time for week 3 of Verve's Viva La Verve Sketches.   Stacey Schafer is the host this week!  She has a sketch + inspiration this week.  Check out the VLV Blog for more details and inspiration!

For my card I am using Simple Stories DIY Boutique designer papers.   I used Verve's Strong Anchor along with Verve's Cut Above Nautical, Occasion Frame, and Rounded Scallop Frame die sets.  I decided to emboss the Nautical elements in white. I finished my card with Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  

In keeping with the text background I chose this fun patterned paper.  I decided to go with this wonderful scripture and mimic the chalkboard look since inspiration does have a chalkboard.  I used red accents and embossed the Nautical elements in white on red. I added some stamped red rope frames behind the focal point.  I added a red floss bow. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
