VLV Sketch ~ Birthday Wish

Hello everyone! It's raining here right now, and it's expected to continue for a few days. Now, I may be the odd duck, but I love rain and cold, so I'm loving the weather.

Since it's Thursday, I have a CCEE challenge card to share with you today. I used the Viva la Verve Sketch (designed by Teresa) from last week as my starting off point. For the CCEE challenge, we were to use scoring. Now if you don't have a Scor-Pal, you can use a foam mat under your card stock and a stylus, and sometimes cutters have ridges for the blades. That's a good guideline also. For my card, I just used my Scor-buddy and made lines every 1/4 inch on my back panel. Because of the gloomy weather here, I had a horrible time photographing this mostly white card. So, if you click on the photos, you can see the details a bit better.

I used Verve stamps for as my focus. The sentiment is from the set Birthday Bash, and the Butterfly (my favorite ever!!!) is from the Blue Skies Set.



You can't see it, but I sprayed some Iridescent Pearl Mist (Maya Road) all over the white panels and the butterfly, and added some Viva Decor Transparent Gel and glitter around the distressed edges.

I know this photo is dark, but you can see where I added the glitter and mist a bit better.


Lastly, I added some Lace that I got from Wild Orchid Crafts, some Jillibean Soup twine, ribbon, and a sweet little PTI button.

That about sums it all up. Now be sure to check out the VLV Sketch Challenges, and also head on over to the CCEE Stamper's Blog to see what the rest of the gals have done with scoring this week.

Happy Stamping my friends!!
Tosh
