Viva La Verve with a birthday twist and a white frame

Man there are so many wonderful challenges out there and my favorite are sketches! Have you all had a chance to check out the weekly Viva La Verve sketch challenges? They all have a twist of some kind and this week's twist is to make a birthday card. How fun! For those who play along each week, there is a chance to win some free Verve!

My card also follows Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge #78 to use white cardstock as a frame of your image. The image is from Verve's newly released set, Miracles Blossom and the sentiment is from Circular Sayings. I love how the sentiment can also be used on the 1/2 circle as well as on a full circle -double the ways to use it!!

I colored the image with copic markers and went over some of the blooms and leaves with Angel Wings Shimmerz. The super cute cardstock is the new DCWV Citrus Pack -gotta love the fun colors! Here is a close up of the blooms.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for a pic or two of Robward. All I am saying is... THUD!

Card Deets:
Stamps: miracles blossom, circular sayings
Paper: white, tempting turquoise, citrus pack DP
Ink: adirondack pitch black
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie grosgrain, orange bling, copic markers, angel wings shimmerz
