...Verve Day Thursday Good Life

It's Thursday, and that means it's also "VERVE" Day!!!   The new Beach Party Collection has inspired me to become a professional surfer, but seeing as I can't surf to save my life I guess I'll just have to pretend that I'm one instead!  LOL!  I chose to use my fave set for this card..."Relax".  I stamped the sun, the surfboards, and the sentiment in Black Ink onto a piece of PTI White Cardstock, then colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers.  The surfboards were cut out, then I added a layer of Crystal Effects on each of them to create some shine.  I paired the focal panel colors with some patterned papers from BasicGrey's June Bug collection.  The focal panel was cut out using the Spellbinders' Nesties and my Big Shot after I added some torn and sponged Kraft Cardstock to mimic sand.  Some Paper Piercing, a piece of Navy Ribbon, some stitching, and a Clear Button complete the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you a little later on with another There She Goes Sneak Peek
