I'm "Verve"ing again

Oh well I liked that sketch so much (and I like so I decided to make another card before the deadline. For this card I set out with 2 goals. 1) to make another Verve contest card 2) to mkae a spinner card using Charmaine's Blog called Tilt Card Tutorial. Thanks Charmaine, Great tutorial. I think I successfully accomplished both.

I started with the spinner or "tilt" portion of my card because after all, it is the main focus of the card. I stamped a flower from PTI's Beautiful Blooms Set and went on to water color the petals and cut it out. Next, I stamped, cut out and wrinkled the leaves. If you look at the close up version of the card you can see that the wrinkled leaves really makes them look more realistic!!

Then I followed Charmaine's tutorial on how to make the spinner. After adding the "Hi" sentiment in each corner I took a coordinated stamp from the same set and stamped additional brown flowers on the pattern paper....Don't they match perfectly!!!

I also stamped the flowers in 2 colors and used it as the diamond portion of the card. I added the middle band of paper which happens to be the other side of the flower paper from Daisy Bucket Designs (which I LOVE!!) last but not least, I added the ribbon to the upper left corner as per the sketch and left little tabs with the ribbon just for a little extra pizzazz!!

Thanks Julee!! For a great sketch, offering the contest and also for your lovely comments on my other posts! Have a Great day!
