Viva la Verve - Challenge 1

Happy Thursday!  I can't believe I am actually posting again this might be a record!  (and I have a post for tomorrow too!)

This is my creation for the first Viva la Verve sketch for January.  I wasn't sure how this would turn out, seeing that the card is HUGE! Well, really it's only 4 x 9.25".  I am really happy with the result, and I even have another card in the works to try it out again!

I used the set Blue Skies, one of the first sets I bought from Verve.  I just fell in LOVE with this butterfly!  I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment onto SU Whisper White CS.  I cut the sentiment out with my nestabilities, and then sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The butterfly was coloured with copics, and cut out with scissors.

The papers are from Basic Grey Marjolaine, and the brads, which are hard to see in the photo are also from the Marjolaine collection.

That's it for today!  Time to get some cleaning done....and maybe colour up another card!

Stamps - Blue Skies (Verve Stamps)
Paper - Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Basic Grey Marjolaine
Other - Nestabilities, Copics, Sewing Machine
