Verve Blog Party Challenges!

Hello!  I was happy when I saw that Julee extended the deadline for the Verve Blog Party Challenges!  I haven't had much of a chance to sit down and play, but I had some time this afternoon : )  First I made a card for the Color Challenge to use Turquoise, Olive, Black, and White.  I actually used PTI Aqua Mist and I threw in a little red so I hope that's ok : )

I used the wreath and sentiment from the Verve set O Christmas Tree.  I just LOVE this font!!!  I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #50 for my layout : )  My next project was a gift card holder.  I used this tutorial.




I used the Verve set Poinsettia Christmas for this project and added some greenery using the Martha Stewart Branch Punch.  My final project is this Sketch Challenge:

I used some PTI Rustic Snowflakes dp and the ornament is from Verve's Ornamental Christmas set.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful night!

I really love that poinsettia gift card. It's so gorgeous. The little punched out branches add so much, along with the pearls. It's fabulous.
