Where there is love...

Good Day, everyone! I'm glad you stopped by. We've got temps in the 50's and 60's this week in TN, and as much as I am a Winter soul, I am pining for Spring this year. I've got Spring on the brain in a major way. I'm even enjoying hearing a few birds outside my window in the morning - well, for now anyway. :)

Today I am using the third of this month's Verve Sketches. This one is SO cool. I just love the tilted panel because it adds so much visual interest. Here is this weeks sketch:





My brain immediately went to my Basic Grey Marjolaine papers. I just love the colors in this pack. Beautiful Blues, Great Greens...just yum!

So, here is the card that was born from all of this Spring fever (not unlike my Beiber fever, but that's another matter altogether...haha!):





What do you think? Oh, I've also started not messing with my photos as much.  Do they look better without the white "cloud" around them and not "softened"? I'm debating, but I think they do look better in their "natural" state.


Oh!! One more thing..I am coming up on my 200th post soon and I'm going to be having a contest or giveaway of sorts. Stay tuned for that. It should happen sometime this week!

Card Stock: Bashful Blue, Early Espresso (SU); Basic Grey Marjolaine (Stamper's Dream)

Great colors and PPs here Keva. I too love that tilted panel. Your green ribbon is the perfect eye-catching focal point.
I do like the card better without the cloud. It looks crisp and clean!
