God's Love, Wisdom, and Grace: Viva La Verve Sketch!

Happy Friday!  It is a new year and a new month for Viva La Verve Sketch Challenges. I have a card to share using January's  Viva La Verve Sketch.

For my card, I used some distressed 12X12 pattern papers that I have had in my stash for a long while.  I combined Verves   Be BlessedMore than LoveNew MerciesBetter Together stamps for the background, heart, and sentiments on the focal image.

   I used Verve dies in  Wavy Hearts Die SetHeart Quartet and the Falling Leaves.  In keeping with the sketch, I layered a piece of pink and white twine that I frayed the ends of once I ties them to go along with the distressed feel of the background paper.  I finished my card with some clear sequins.  I am playing along with DiesRUsChallenge.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
