You Make a Difference in My Life
Hi Everyone! I didn't get a chance to come back and post this yesterday, but here it is now. :) I created this card this weekend to play along with a couple Verve challenges. I played along with the August Get Your Diva on Challenge (to use tags or create a set of tags) and the Viva La Verve August Week #3 sketch challenge.
I used the Bloom and Grow and Text Objects stamp sets from Verve Stamps along with the Elegant Leaves die (also from Verve Stamps). I stamped the leaves on cream cardstock with archival black ink (CTMH). My patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye's Alphabet Soup Girl line. I stamped the text print (using tea dye distress ink) over a piece of patterned paper that I had die cut for my tag. Then, I added a sentiment and distressed the edges of all my patterned papers, tag, and leaves using antique linen and tea dye distress ink. I added lots of stitching and some crocheted lace from May Arts. I finished off my card with some 5mm pearls, 25mm white wild roses, 15mm white open roses, 8mm white semi-open white roses, and heart stick pins from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Have a great day!
