FS card, thinking of Verve!

Today was SCS Featured Stamper challenge and the honor goes to... Kelly H! I am new to Kelly, but she has a really fun gallery! I chose this card to case. I loved her use of white embossing powder -I never think to do that and it's really lovely! Makes quite a statement. I changed the colors, image and sentiment. Used my scalloped nesties, added some layers and a butterfly!

The images are from Verve's Abundant Blessings and the sentiment is from Verve's Artful Elegance. The pearls are Latte colored Kaiser pearls. I thought using colors in this tone would be good for a masculine sympathy card. I have none in my stash, and I really like to make these ahead of time -if you know what I mean!?!

Here is a close up picture.

AND... mark your calendars! Verve is having their big March release on Sunday, March 8th, 5pm Pacific!! You don't want to miss the release of the 8 new sets and 5 Plain Janes!
