Blue Skies...

Hello everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday. It's simply beautiful in TN today! After the strong winds we had on Thursday night (we spent the majority of the night in a closet under the stairs a la Harry Potter!), we really needed this kind of day.

My card today uses the first sketch of the Viva la Verve sketches for March. These sketches are my absolute favorite. I look forward, every Friday, to seeing what the Verve Divas (in this case, Amber Hight) have come up with for us..and they never disappoint.  Here is this weeks' sketch:




Isn't it wonderful? As soon as I saw it, I knew what card I wanted to make. Don't you love when an idea comes to you as soon as you see something and then when the final product looks exactly like you pictured it? I sure do!  Here is my card:





The notebook paper may be a bit too distressed, huh? Maybe so...I have a heavy hand sometimes..lol. Well, enjoy the rest of your Saturday and if you get a chance, please stop by the Verve section of Splitcoast and play along with the challenges! 



Stamps: Blue Skies (Verve)
Card Stock: Smokey Shadow, Spring Moss(Papertrey); Marjolaine dsp (Basic Grey)

I am going to have to start playing with these sketches....they are fabulous1 I for one think you did not distress the notebook page too much! Love your interpretation of this sketch.

**I am just tickled that you opened your etsy shop. Keep us updated on how it is going!
