Guest Diva

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are enjoying this wonderful holiday : ) I was able to sit down today and make a card for the fabulous sketch that Miss Julee Tilman created. She's going to pick her favorite, and that person will be the Guest Diva for the June release!!! As you all know, I LOVE Verve, so of course I had to give it a try : )

For my card I used the stems from Verve's Miracles Blossom set, and the flowers and sentiment are from Verve's Wishful Elegance set. I stamped the stems with Kiwi Kiss and colored them in with my Aquapainter using Kiwi Kiss. I stamped the flowers with Perfect Plum, and used my Aquapainter once again. I colored the centers with my Cadmium Yellow Copic marker and applied Stardust Stickles. The flowers were cut out and popped up on Dimensionals. The dp is from Basic Grey's Wisteria Paper Pad. I used my Fiskars Lace Border Punch for the decorative border, and my CB Swiss Dots Folder for the texture on the Perfect Plum strip. I added a zigzag stitch around the perimeter, and some Kiwi Kiss ribbon and it was complete! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
