...Thinking Of Verve

Another Verve release has gone by, and I'm still amazed how Julee Tilman can keep cranking out such gorgeous and elegant sets month after month! I keep referring to this month's release as her "Bohemian Rhapsody Collection" to everyone I know...that's the only way I can even try to explain the new sets. This card utilizes what I call a "medallion" element, and it's from the set "Accent Notes". I stamped the medallion in black onto cream cardstock, then colored the inside of it in a baby blue. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink, then embossed with baby blue embossing powder. The sentiment and medallion panels were cut out using the Spellbinders' Labels Nine Nesties and my Big Shot. I used some of the patterned papers from BasicGrey's Granola 6X6 Paper Pad, and wrapped some baby blue ribbon around the horizontal panel. I adding some stitching around the blue jean-like panel, then added a black cardstock scalloped border to the vertical floral panel. The upper right corner of the large kraft cardstock background panel was punched with the Spiral Punch, then the edges were sponged with sand ink. Baby blue rhinestones were added to the focal panel to complete the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another TGF Farm Fresh Friday challenge. Until then...

Mercy, Sorry to hijack your comment board but I don't know another way to reach you. I have emailed you a few times with no response from you so I don't know if they are going through. Please email me at peebsmama(at)comcast(dot)net. This is regarding the stamps I ordered from you that I still haven't received.
