VLV May Week 3

YAY! We've got sketch and inspiration photo this week at Viva la Verve! This helps me narrow down what I'm going to create and saves tons of time perusing all my papers. Sometimes when I see an inspiration photo I can actually grab hold in my head which papers I'm going to use (does anyone else do that???) That's what happened here. I just knew! Here's the sketch and inspiration photo:


So, the papers I saw in my head are Bazzill Basics - Timeless. I used some of my Recollections solids (I have LOTS of this paper) for the base and matting. The stamps are Verve Brighter Days for the sentiment and Thankful Blossoms to represent the "stars" on the sketch. Both are stamped with Versamark and heated with gold EP. I added a bit of color with the sequins and the tiny bow. Here's my card:

Now that I'm looking at the photo, looks more like Xmas than sunshine, but sunshine was in my heart!

Catch ya later!
