Viva la Verve Week 4

This is the final weekly challenge for the month – VLVJuly2010 – I’m glad I could get all four challenges done. I’m heading to the east coast on Tuesday for three weeks, so I’m not going to get a chance to upload many more cards before I go. My relatives and I decided (last year) to put together a reunion for as many of our family members as possible. My mom was from Newfoundland, and most of her relatives are still there. It is a beautiful, rural area of the province, and I can’t wait to take my husband and two teenaged boys. I think they will have a bit of a culture shock, but I hope the R & R does us all a little good.

Anyway, this week Amber gave us a great sketch to work with:

We got to choose our own inspiration photo from the “Bath” section of Bed Bath & Beyond. Here is the shower curtain I chose for my inspiration:

I rifled through a bunch of my patterened paper and came up with something that I think worked pretty well with the shower pattern. So, here are the details of my card:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso
Patterned Paper – Kate Knight for Dovecraft “A Hint of Pink”
Stamp – Verve “Forever in Our Hearts”
Ink – Momento Rich Cocoa, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray
Accessories – Cuttlebug EF “Birds & Swirls”, Oval Nestabilities, grey satin ribbon, Bow Easy, silver charm, silver cord, dimensionals

Thanks for having a look!
