…Verve Day Love




Today’s Verve Day Thursday is all about love.  Not the kind of love that is convenient and wrapped in a perfect little package, but the kind of love that is complicated and has a tendency to be messy when you least expect it.  The kind of love that endures when others thought it would fall by the wayside without a second glance.  That is the kind of love that I want to celebrate today…true love does not come by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. 

I created this card using the Verve set “One Person”.  I used the Mojo Monday #101 as my starting point, and tried to keep the layout pretty clean.  I only used two pieces of patterned paper from October Afternoon’s Farm Fresh paper pad.  I added Black Cardstock mats and accents, and also added some Black Stitching along the edges of the background panel.  I stamped the flower from the set in Tuxedo Black onto PTI White Cardstock three times, then colored each of them with Copic Sketch Markers.   I cut out and layered the bloom, then attached them to each other using several Dimensionals.  The completed blossom was attached to a PTI Cream Cardstock circle panel that was cut out using Circle Nesties and my Big Shot.  After adding some Paper Piercing and a few Pearls the card was complete.

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here again tomorrow with another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge!  Until then…
