Wishing You Comfort


Hey there! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! I have had a very low-key Saturday. I've taken my time, gotten side tracked, and created at my leisure. During one of my side tracks, I was surfing online (one of my favorite past times) and came across Verve's Viva La Verve's sketch/inspiration challenge. This is my first time participating, but I could not resist after taking a peek at Amber's sketch and the inspirational photos. I had a lot of fun with this one too!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for taking a peek!

Instructions
  1. Create an A2 card from brown cardstock.
  2. Trim yellow cardstock and stamp flowers, then matte on cream cardstock.
  3. Tie ribbon around yellow cardstock into a bow and set aside.
  4. Stamp sentiment on cream cardstock.
  5. Trim polka dot patterned paper and adhere to card front.
  6. Adhere yellow cardstock with foam adhesive.
  7. Add cream cardstock with foam adhesive.
Supplies

Stamps :: Verve Stamps - serenity, wonderful wishes
Paper :: Papertrey Ink - vintage cream, dark chocolate, bitty dots (patterned paper)
