Viva La Verve + A Gelatos Facial

Hey folks!

I’m up on the Viva La Verve blog today hosting my very first VLV Sketch + Inspiration challenge! I would so LOVE it if you joined in the challenge this week! Go ahead and check out my sketch and inspiration pic there and see what the other Divas made too! 🙂

Here is my card with the Be Blessed stamp setPetal Point dies and Sprightly Sprigs dies!


A funny story about this – I started on a completely different track making this card with a different vision in my head. Mostly because I was fixated on the black and white line pattern in the inspiration pic!

15 minutes of futzing around with gelatos and my stencil produced this…


and got me looking like this…


So after tossing away the blackened paper piece in the bin, scrubbing away the grime on my workdesk and cleaning off my gelatos facial, I went back to the drawing board to make the card you saw above!

Now aren’t you curious to pop over to the VLV blog and see the inspiration pic that caused so much havoc? 😉 Do play in the challenge while you are there!

Thanks for dropping by!

    Rich, elegant, beautiful; your card is an eye-catching beauty, for sure! Sometimes, those ‘detours’ have most delightful results, as your card clearly proves. Sooo pretty – as are you, gelato facial and all. You are such a ‘sparkle’!! Hugs~c
