More Verve!

I had forgotten that I received some Scenic Route paper in my most recent payment package from Cards magazine. I really liked this paper from the Rockland collection- Franklin Street. It's double sided paper, so I used both sides on here. I found that olive and moss weren't quite right, so I pulled out a 2006 colour- true thyme. It's not a perfect match either, but it definitely worked. Plus, I still have matching ribbon! The sketch is one from my book o'sketches. The original sketch had a button on the left. I believe I took this sketch from a Stampin' Up! catalogue when I was looking for layouts that incorporated buttons. When I'm doing my sketches, I rarely include the matting layers in my drawing. I find that the amount of matting definitely varies from card to card. If, while making it, I feel it needs something more or a separation of sorts, I will add the extra layers (like on this card).
Stamps: Thankful Blossoms, Anniversary Birds, Happy Thoughts (all by Verve Visual)
Paper: Soft Sky, True Thyme, White, Rockland Franklin St. by Scenic Route
Ink: True Thyme
Accessories, etc.: true thyme stitched grosgrain, pop dots


  1. This is such a sweet card! The Scenic Route paper complements the Verve Stamps really nicely. I'll have to try this sketch sometime!
