Where Hope Grows....Viva La Verve Sketch and More!

I am popping in to day with a quick card.  My hubby celebrated his Birthday over the weekend and I cooked and hosted a dinner party for 16 people.  While that may not seem like a lot, I felt like I cooked all day.  Plus, I had very little leftovers.  Which is a good thing as my family does not do leftovers.   Needless to say, I was exhausted.  

I am using Viva La Verve Week 1 sketch.  Amber is the host.  Great sketch, Amber!  I tried to stay true to the sketch and keep it clean and simple; however, I did flip it to make a vertical card.  I am using Verve's Abundant Blessings, Miracle Blossom, All Aflutter Plain Jane and Verve's Cut Above All Aflutter die set.   I finished with some touches of glitter and some faux glittered circle accents in the top right corner.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
