Hi friends! It's my turn to host the Viva la Verve sketch this week, and it's inspiration week so I got to choose a yummy photo to kick start your mojo!

 Don't you love that black and emerald with the pops of gold and hot pink?! Here's my card...

I used the FABULOUS Great Friend for my huge focal flower. This set is super popular and currently sold out - I recommend grabbing it as soon as it comes back in stock, these large florals are amazing! I cut my card base skinny (3.5") so I could overhang the flower a little. I used enamel paint to accent the stamen.

The Pennant Trim die and Heart Quartet were cut from glitter cardstock. The sentiment was stamped on a Banner Bundle die cut piece. I snipped the sentiment apart so I could change the layout - do you ever do this to your stamps? A few years ago the thought would have horrified me but now I do it quite regularly.

Here's a peek inside...
