Sequined Bloom

Hello friends! I hope you've had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you're in America, and maybe just a little sale shopping no matter where you live?

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

This week the challenge is to make a thinking of you card and send it to someone! Here's my card...

With my last Verve order I finally picked up the amazing Dream Big stamp set and matching Dreamy Leaves dies. I've fussy cut the three layers of the flower and added sequins for the flower center. The sentiment is from the new Chevron Love and you'll see a hint of the award banner peeking out - it's back in stock, yay!

I've used the fab Freshly Made Sketches 114 for my card.

Here's the inside...

Here's another gorgeous sentiment from Chevron Love. I added some stamped leaves, and dotted some peach ink for a botanical look.

It's sale time at Verve! Click the images for all the amazing deals!

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