...Verve Day Thursday Birthday Blues

Please scroll down to the next post to see the NEW TGF Scrapbook Kit, In The Spotlight!!!
It's Thursday, and time to celebrate my LURVE FOR VERVE. I was so inspired by the birthday card last week that I decided to make another one.  So I used another set from the March Release called "Big Wish". I stamped the image and sentiment in Black Ink, then colored the cake and flower with Copic Sketch Markers. I used some patterned papers from the Girl Friday paper pad by Cosmo Cricket. I used my Apron Lace Border Punch on the bottom of the front panel, then added some zig-zag stitching all along the sides of the patterned papers.  I cut the focal panel out using an  Oval Nesties Die and my Big Shot. A piece of wide Striped Ribbon and a Blue Button with Linen Thread were added to complete the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you again tomorrow with another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge! Until then...
