Hi everyone! Ahh, I have so missed stamping the last few days. All of my posts last week were scheduled because my mom was having surgery and staying with us while she recovers some so this weekend was SO busy!! Her surgery went fine and she is ready to go home..lol..but I think that's because I will not do what she says! haha...
Anyway, today's card features this month's first Verve sketch for April. The sketch is brought to us by Amber Hight. It has so many cool little panels...so much fun to use!
I am also using the color scheme from this week's CR84FN challenge.
I love these colors together. They're so woodsy to me. I decided not to go with a masculine card because I wanted to use my newest Verve Plain Jane, "Hope Perches". Emily Dickinson is my all time favorite poet, so as soon as I saw they were releasing this I knew that I had to have it. The entire poem is lovely.
So, here is my card:
I just love this card for all of the panels. This was a great sketch. It was fun to use the different papers and textures with this. I added the Papertrey images of the birdcage and bird from "Love Birds". I thought it went perfectly with the Verve sentiment.
Last week, I got a great little surprise in the mail from my friend, Teresa. She sent me a package full of goodies...brads and bling, papers, fabrics, seam binding..just tons of way cool stuff. She is SO very sweet! The brad on the ribbon and the floral paper are both from my gift! :)
Well, that's it from me. I will leave you guys with the "Hope is the thing with Feathers" poem in its entirety! :) Thanks for stopping by!
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chilliest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
