Sorry about the lack of posting the past few days. I have been busy in my little craft room, just haven't had a chance to get things posted. So, to make it up to you, I actually have two cards to show you.
It's been forever since I've participated in a full session of Verve's VLV sketch challenges. This month, however, I am determined to do all the sketches. This card is for week one. I am also using this card to send to Kristina Werner for her October "Mail Call" for Thank you cards. I used more papers from my Simon Says Stamp October Card kit. I built the flower in the middle using Verve's "Sunny Days". I added some glossy accents and stickles to bling it all up a bit too. The "Thank You" sentiment is also from Verve. The base of the card is actually Dark Chocolate from PTI; but it does look a little black in the picture, doesn't it? I think I finally found a way to take pictures that I think works pretty well. Outside on the front porch. I think the background adds a nice soft touch. Some of the coloring is a little off still; but that's ok. Obviously, it's a little dependent on the weather, which I hope will continue to cooperate.
Mojo Monday" sketch. Again, it's been a while since I've made a Mojo card, so this was fun to do. I really liked the simplicity of this sketch also. This will also be sent to Kristina for mail call. In total, I'm sending three cards to her. I can't wait to see if she'll show one on camera! Again, I used papers for the October card kit. I decided when I signed up for the kit every month that I was going to make sure I used up as much as I could in the kit. The butterfly is from Verve's "Blue Skies" set. I stamped them in Certainly Celery ink and Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I added some stickles and sequins to each one as well. The sentiment is from "Handwritten Greetings" and I stamped it using Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan. I also used "Lots of Dots" to stamp the circles behind the butterflies
