Verve Project Parade

The Verve Visual team is running an inspiration challenge using this piece from Pottery Barn. They're even offering a a chance to win $15 in Verve Bucks!! You just have to upload by noon TODAY!....I know, nothing like my last minute upload, huh?

Here's my card for the challenge.

I just got the Petals & Stems and Fluttering By sets...I've been ooohing and ahhhing over them since I was away at the beach in May. I don't know what took me so long to order them....they're FABO! Love, Love, LOVE them!!! I especially love the butterflies in each set.

I stamped up a sheet of the small swirl from the SU Priceless set in Real Red on white CS, stamped the one butterfly from the Fluttering By set in Brilliance Black over top of the swirls (three times), cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals over the base layer. I got the red swirl primas at Michael's.

The inside of the card includes a white panel with a black mat. I stamped the small butterfly from the Petals & Stems set in the corner in Brilliance Black, then paper pierced a *trail* for the butterfly.
