Some Verve cards with NEW papers!

Hi everyone!  I just love Cosmo Cricket.  Yep.  I do.  I am totally smitten with their new Christmas paper pad, Mitten Weather and Pixie-Licious is DELICIOUS!  And, bonus -the purple colors in both coordinate!  The Stamp Simply Ribbon store is now fully stocked with all the new Cosmo Cricket release 6x6 paper pads and lots more (Kaisercraft, Crate Paper, Basic Grey, etc)!!
My first card is for the September Week 3 of the Viva La Verve challenges. I chose picture 1 for my inspiration.  The sentiment is from Verve's Big Wish set. I colored it in with copic markers. I thought my new Cosmo Cricket, Pixie-Licious pattern paper was a perfect match for the wall vinyl! The flower is a Trellis Rose in purple from Prima. The ribbon is 1/4" silk in purple.  I have to admit, that bottom circle part on the sketch really threw me, but I flashed back to last week's sketch by Mercy and used a ring instead of a solid circle.  

My second card uses a sentiment from Verve's Always on my Mind set stamped on a doilie.  I have had these doilies forEVER and couldn't figure out how to use them until I saw this card from Tiffany.  The sketch is this week's CPS185.  I loved this one and used the amazing papers from Crate Paper's, Restoration 6x6 pad.  More primas on this one too.  The larger one is from the Prima Trellis Roses Coral pack and the smaller one is from the Prima Innoscence Collection.  I lightly sponged both with some blue ink to blend better with the pattern paper.
I got all fancy with the stitching on this card and it was a total nightmare!  lol!  You should see the back.  Thankfully the front turned out looking good. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
