Hi All

Quick pop in to share a card I made yesterday.

I wanted to make a card for the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge. These I find a real challenge as they are quite layered. But I wanted to give it a go as best I could making my, kinda, CAS version! When I saw the amazing photo at Addicted to Stamps and More and idea popped into my head. This card took me ages to make but I quite like the finishing touches.

This gorgeous sentiment is from Verve. I used a sriped border stamp from Winnie and Walter gold embossing it on the black card. I then used the same stamp inky it onto white card and die cut it with stitched dies from Lil'Inkers. Tag is from CAS-ual Fridays

I think you can see how the photo inspired me!
I will also enter this into AAA Card Challenge-Quote-gotta love this quote-hopefully hubby will too!! (thanks
