Deconstructed Sketch 186 
I think this inspiration picture is so beautiful and has lots of creative possibilities!  I focused on the dark gray, light gray, white, and a few sprinkles of pinks. I used Verve's Stronger Love, No Matter What, and Better Together stamp sets.  I mixed these sets with Verve's Cut Above Wavy Hearts and Flag It dies.  I finished my card with a few Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix.     I am playing along with the Deconstruction Sketch 186.

 

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
