It's Not All Black and White

The Beauty of Dreams

It's the final day of this month's Verve Visual project parade. You still have time to squeeze in an entry for a chance at $15 in Verve bucks. Get inspired by the following pictures and link your card a this Verve Visual blog entry by noon today.

So here's what I was inspired to create. I thought this Nana's Nursery paper, though pink instead of red, really mimicked the pattern in the quilt. I also used the curve of the nightstand leg to make the front edge of my card. I cut the card base curve by hand, then traced it onto the Nana's Nursery paper and cut again. The sentiment and flowers are from Floral Whimsy. And those little black dots? They're mini faux eyelets. Just poke a hole with your paper piercer, then trace around it with a black gel pen.

Stamps: Floral Whimsy (Verve Visual)
Paper: Pearlized White (Paper Accents); Nana's Nursery Baby Girl (DCWV); So Saffron, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Onyx black (Versafine); Pretty in Pink, Sahara Sand (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: paper piercer and template (Stampin' Up!); black Gelly Roll pen (Sakura); rhinestones; Forever Flowers #4 (Prima)

I love your card! The curve is a very pretty feature and the faux mini eyelets are so cool. Love where you placed them, too. Your color choices are perfect, especially with the flower accents. Really sets everything off!
