Hi card makers, I finally finished this card I started a few days ago. Viva la Verve Sketch #3 for March. I like this sketch a lot and hope to remember to use it again. I used my Basic Grey "Fresh Cut" paper again. I love floral paper and I like the solids in this pad because the resemble water colored patterns.

My sewing machine was cooperating tonight so I stitched around the perimeter and on the diagonal. Then after stamping the Verve flower in every shade of pink ink I had I settled on this Versamagic chalk ink. I stamped the leaves in Momento pear tart on green card stock and die cut them with the matching Verve die. The birthday sentiment stamp is also Verve. Twine, a button and enamel dots finish it.
