Viva la Verve - August week 4

First off, let me apologize for the terrible picture.  I don't know if it was the contrast against the dark counter top or the light in the room... whatever it was it's disappointing.  This card looks much better IRL but I decided to share it anyway.   Here is the card, the sketch, and the inspiration bedroom photo.

I started off with some scrapbook paper by Scrapworks called 'Florabella'.  I usually do not like to work with scrapbook paper as the images/patterns are waaaaay too large to suit me.  I used SU!'s soft sky, chocolate chip and very vanilla as my cardstocks.  The focal point of this card is the little flowers which are my favorites at the moment - from The Cat's Pajamas.  I also used their button die for the centers.  I cut my soft sky paper to the sizes I wanted, did my scallops, and ran them through the Cuttlebug with my swiss dots embossing folder.  I then used a strip of chocolate chip to help set off the flowers.  The twine is actually white kitchen string which I just swiped with a brown Copic marker and I didn't care if it covered entirely or not since it's all the rage right now to have candy striped twine (which I don't have, yet). 

That's about all that went on with the card... it's not one of my faves but it really is prettier in real life.

Be back soon,
