A Verve Inspired FBW



Here today is my Verve Challenge meets FBW Challenge card. Lots going on here. For FBW the challenge this week is to use hearts on our FBW card and for Verve I followed their week three sketch which can be found here. It is also very rare that I use purples on my cards but I was inspired by this picture over at Verve too.

I started by stamping my image and sentiment from Verves Loves Flower onto Pale Plum cardstock and cut it out with my square nesties. My DP was from a TE Key Ingredients pack and I am not sure whose paper it is. My butterfly is Verves Fluttering By and I stamped it twice onto the Pale Plum and cut them out and added some black stones. My center green panel was cut out with my Blossom nesties and embellished with black stones. Then I added a few hearts to the already existing hearts in the image and a few onto the corner of the image panel. I happen to LOVE how this came out considering it is purple!!!

So you have a chance to play along with us this week at FBW and there is blog candy involved this week also. Go and check out the details on the FBW Blog. While you are surfing around please go and leave our sponsor, Susanas, some love too. I have bought from Susana on more than one occasion and I have to say that her customer service is top notch and she carries just so many items you are guaranteed to fall in love with her store!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
