Verve's August Project Parade

So have you all seen this month's Project Parade inspiration photo and following along with the team's creations? Just full of yummy deliciousness I tell you!! I am a little late in getting this posted (haven't been feeling well this week), but there is still time to play along.

This month it's a pink and brown color challenge. Just upload your creation to this post on Verve Stamp's blog no later than noon on September 5th (yep, that's tomorrow!). If you upload to SCS, use keyword VVPP05 so we can see all the delicious creations together. A random player will be drawn on September 5 and will receive $15 in Verve Bucks.

Here is the card I made for the challenge. I chose to use the Floral Whimsy set. The base is chocolate chip with the next layer close to cocoa. To make the embossed lines on the bottom portion of the cocoa panel, I used my Fiskars trimmer with the score blade. I scored a line, then moved it 1/4" and repeated the entire way across. I don't have a Score-Pal, but this worked just fine! The white panel uses the Swiss Dots CB embossing folder. I dove into my yummy pink and brown Basic Grey Sultry 6x6 pack for the background panel and pieced the vase with it as well.
