Flowers of tomorrow...
This card is for the first Viva la Verve With a Twist challenge for April. The twist is to use only a sentiment on the card. Not a stretch for me--I love to do that!
My base card is Whisper White with layers of Wild Wasabi (retired SU! In Color), Regal Rose, and DP from the Porcelain 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey. The next element is Wild Wasabi and Regal Rose run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The next element is Wild Wasabi with a scalloped border, Regal Rose, and more DP. A ribbon and bow of Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon was tied around the card at this point. The sentiment uses a Verve Plain Jane stamp called Flowers of Tomorrow, stamped on Whisper White with Wild Wasabi and cut/embossed with a circle Nestabilities die. It's layered on Regal rose cut/embossed with another circle die, Wild Wasabi cut/embossed with a Labels Two die, and is up on 3M foam squares. Three flat back pearls accent the bottom left corner and tiny pearls accent the corners of the focal image.
Thanks for dropping by!
