There’s a new sketch today over on SplitCoastStampers for Verve’s Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge. The sketch this week was designed by Charmaine and it’s amazing! There are so many possibilities with this sketch!
For my card I started with a kraft cardbase that I roughed up a bit. I layered that with another kraft panel that was embossed with a Cuttlebug Script embossing folder. I distressed that panel too. For the vertical panels I thought it would be fun to represent that section with a torn piece so I found a nice subtle blue scrap of designer paper (I have no clue what it’s from) and used that, distressed it, tore it and distressed it some more. The ribbon is the gorgeous new dark brown and cream polka dot ribbon from Verve’s Polka Dot Basics Ribbon Collection. I layered it over a bit of twine thread and added to little Prima roses to the center of the bow. The sentiment is the new Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane and I stamped it on kraft using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll be able to join us for this week’s sketch!
