Viva la Verve!

Hi everyone! I have a Viva la Verve challenge card to share. Each week, Amber challenges everyone with a wonderful sketch and some inspiration photos. This week's cutie pie apron inspiration photo caught my eye. I WANT this apron! I also combined this with Lisa's new Poppy Seed challenge #2 challenge -to use polka dots, buttons, and the color spring moss.
Uhhh... I'm not so sure about this card. I futzed and fiddled around with this one ALL last night. I finally settled on "this one is bright"!! LOL!

I used paper from the Basic Grey, Green at Heart 6x6 pad and some White Twill ribbon. I had buttons at the bottom of the twill pieces, but it just didn't work. So I punched some Spring Moss paper and cut out the center of the main flower to layer on top instead.

The main flower is from Verve's Love's Flower set, and the top 2 layers were pieced the bottom layer is white cardstock. See the tiny border punch above the bottom panel? I love the scale and delicate feel of this punch called Dotted Scallop, it's perfect for that little something extra! Rach is out of stock right now, so shoot her an email.

We would love you to play along!! Please use keyword VLVMAR2010 when uploading to SCS.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
