Viva la Verve - August week 2

Good Morning...!  And a happy Thursday to you all.   It's been another busy week around here what with some lengthy appointments and just general 'stuff'.  We're getting excited to have our granddaughter come stay with us for a week... she gets in Saturday night!  We've planned some exciting things to do with her... some neat surprises... and I'll try to post pictures when I have time in between activities.  Can't wait!

Today's card is my week 2 Viva la Verve challenge submission.  This month we are to select inspiration photos from bedrooms and follow Amber's sketch (of course). 

So, now you see what came out of what!  I used my Basic Grey Kioshi paper pack and my new Martha Stewart double loop edge punch to get it started.  The card is a basic white base with so saffron as my layering paper.  I used Spellbinders nestabilities labels 1 and stamped 'sunshine and smiles' from Verve's "Let it Shine" stamp set and then angled the placement to fit the sentiment.  I bordered it with yellow stickles (and am now second-guessing that decision - maybe should have used my liquid pearls).  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch also.  I used a 5/8" so saffron grosgrain ribbon from SU! and tied a big bow!

I hope you enjoy this card ... I'm looking at it as I type and it sure is colorful...!!!

Thanks for taking a peek and I'll be back with more soon!  Need to go and do my card for Verve's Petals & Stems - Fluttering By challenge... two of my faves!!!

See ya... have a great day...

Paper - BG Kioshi, SU! so saffron, whisper white
