Verve Project Parade and a CPS sketch with some sunshine

Hi everyone! It's my day to post my project on the Verve Blog. In case you haven't hopped on over there, the theme this month is "It's a Girl Thing: Celebrating the Women in our Lives". Here is a tiny peek at my project. You will have to go on over to see the whole thing!! If you play along, there are 2 chances to win some Verve bucks!!

Next up, I have a card for this week's CPS114 challenge sponsored this week by Sweet and Sassy Stamps. I also played along with Sharon's SSnotime85 challenge -to use yellow and let the sun shine in!! We have been having NON-stop rain over here in Oregon for days and I guess I needed a bit of bright colors!

This card uses pp from DCWV the Citrus pack. Man, I love all the colors and patterns in this pack. Actually, now that I am posting this, I see that it kinda coordinates with the bright colors with my Verve Project Parade... humm, I guess I really was needing some BRIGHT fun around me!!

The image and sentiment used on this card are from Repeat Impressions, the image is called Sunflower. I just love this delicate image -it made me smile the entire time I was making this. The sentiment tag was made using the double ended tag nestie, I just "skootched" the paper before the second hole, so the die only cut one end. I took my SU turquoise marker to the "stitching" on the Top Note piece. Some little primas and blue bling finish off the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
