Viva la Verve February Week 1

I absolutely love participating in the Viva la Verve challenges. Each week, we are given a sketch and we are to create a card with it. I don’t own many Verve stamps (yet), but I love the ones I have and I use them over and over again. Here is the sketch we were given for this week:

I wanted to use something I’ve had for quite a long time but hadn’t used before – the square ProvoCraft die. I wasn’t sure how this would look, but thought I’d give it a shot. Here is what I came up with:

Here is what I used to put my card together:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white Strathmore, Regal Rose (SU), pale pink (from my scrap stash)
Patterned Paper – Gossamer
Stamp – Beautiful You (Verve)
Ink – Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories – ProvoCraft square die, round nestabilities, pink organza ribbon, hat pin, pearls and beads, dimensionals

Thanks for having a look today – I hope you like it!
