Dreams: Viva La Verve Sketch!



Happy Friday!  It is a new month and a new Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge. I have a card to share using April's  Viva La Verve Sketch.






My card today showcases a few NEW Verve stamps and dies which will be released Tuesday, April 10th!  Stay tuned for the Spotlight Hops beginning tomorrow, April 7th!  We have a fun weekend planned!


For my card I started with some fun DCWV Wildflower pattern papers.  I used some sweet blush dotted and striped pattern papers.  I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Words of Wisdom stamp set using versa mark and heat embossed using gold embossing powder.  I lightly sponged some berry sorbet ink to the center for effect as well as to make the sentiment pop.  I die cut, stamped, and gold embossed the butterflies using  Hope Lifts stamp set and coordinating Lifted Hope Die Set  perfectly using the Tim Holtz stamping platform onto white card stock.



I added foam tape to add dimension and help the key elements pop.  I used the with the new Lacey Frames and Lacey Trim Duo die sets. I added the main panel to a top folding white card stock base.   I finished my card with a few clear sequins!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
