Love Grows Stronger

It's time for another fun challenge at Crazy for Challenges!

This week the challenge is to use pearls and flowers! I used a gorgeous Verve set, Stronger Love for my pretty take on the challenge. Here's my card...

I'm really into these peachy, pink tones lately. I've used the latest Viva la Verve sketch (stamp along for your chance at a $100 gift certificate!!) for my layout...

I sponged the circle with shadow inks, spritzed the Flutterby die cut with some pearl glimmermist, and coloured the flowers with some ink picked up with a waterbrush. The pleated paper panel was stiched down both sides to keep it all together - I really love this look! You also see some of my fave Pennant Trim die peeking out.

Here's the inside of my card...

Super simple, just a beautiful sentiment stamped in (gloopy - grrr) pigment ink. I think the cardstock is reading black on my monitor, and maybe yours too, but is actually dark grey to pair a little softer with the peachy tones.

Before I forget - it's Autumn Sale time at Verve!

Now it's time to go see all the fab inspiration from the design team, happy hopping!
