Time for Verve!

I was surprised to see my dh come home sick today, joining my middle son. All three of them (the littlest included) are napping right now so I was able to make some quick cards with some Verve sets before I finish conquering our weekend of camping laundry!
This card is for this week's Mojo Monday sketch! It seems like it has been forever since I have been able to play! Julee always has such fun sketches! :-)
Recipe:
Stamps: petals & stems, filagree fantasy,
Paper: old olive, bali breeze dp, tempting turquoise, real red, whisper white
Ink: real red, old olive, tempting turquoise
Accessories: nestabilities, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, ribbon (H&M Stamps)


This month's Project Parade Challenge at Verve Visual is a color combo. You have until the end of the month to give it a try and possibly win some Verve Bucks!! At first, I was a bit nervous about using 5 colors on one card but it all came together so nicely! I just love this new set!!
Recipe:
Stamps: petals & stems
Ink: old olive, basic black, pumpkin pie, groovy guava, soft sky
Paper: groovy guava dp, so saffron, soft sky, boho blend scrappin kit dp
Accessories: SU! ribbon, brads (Amanda Blu), blender pen

These are both totally gorgeous, Maren. I'm sorry your boys are all sick, but hey--at least you got in some stamping time, hehe! I love the colors on both, the red dotted ribbon really makes everything pop on your first card! And the 5 color card is an absolute stunner! I love the leaves on the flower stems, so very cute! You are rockin' those VV stamps in every way, girl! TFS! hugs and visit my blog for a giveaway :)
