It's Not All Black and White

Viva La Verve!

That's the name of the new Verve challenges that started last week in the Verve forum on Splitcoast, and I just love it. It sounds so fun to me. I can't even think it without a cheesy Elvis snarl and accent. Anyway, every Friday Amber posts a new sketch with a twist. This week requires a twist of bling. Here's the challenge thread. And there's a prize involved!

I used a couple of new EP
goodies (Birds and
Swirls folder, My Mind's Eye paper) with the Verve set, Hearts on Fire (available today). And my bit of bling is the three rhinestones under the sentiment. They were clear, but I colored them with Copic marker R59. I just love doing that. One embellishment with limitless possibilities.

What's In It?
Stamps- hearts on fire (Verve Stamps)
Paper- white (PTI and Georgia Pacific); choc chip(SU); irresistible love dots (MME)
Ink- choc chip, ruby red (SU); Copic R59
Accessories- ribbon (American Crafts); rectangle nesties; icons (MAMBI); birds and swirls folder (CB); dimensionals
