Hope! Viva La Verve Sketch and MORE!

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Hope you are enjoy your long weekend with family and friends!  I had a few moments in my craft room today and decided to make a card using this week's Viva La Verve Week 5 Sketch.  Tosh designed this sketch and it looked fun with the pocket look design.

I am playing along today with Verve's Viva La Verve Week 5 Sketch Challenge! Tosh designed a fun sketch for us!

I stamped all of my papers using Verve stamps. I am using Bloom and Grow, Bountiful Backgrounds, Dream Big, and Floral Whimsy. I am also using Verve's Classy Label die and Sweet Scallop die.
