Verve Spring Fling

Hi everyone and TGIF! Sweet Amy emailed me earlier this week asking if I'd like to play along and sample her sketch for the Verve Spring Fling Challenges. Would I want to?...oh heck yeah! Thanks so much, Amy!!

What's the Verve Spring Fling? It's a whole day of challenges and sneak peeks today. The first challenge was just posted at 1 p.m., some sneak peeks were shown at 2 p.m., now Amy's fun sketch was just posted, more sneak peeks will be posted at 4 p.m., and so on, and the last challenge will be going up at 9 p.m. tonight. Also at 9 p.m. there will be a Spring Fling Chat in the Verve Forum on SCS for an hour and then the finale will be a Verve Diva blog hop at 10 p.m.!

Here's Amy's sketch. Super cool, huh? I love it!



...and here's my card using Verve's Seeing Stars:



The images were stamped in Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and I added dots of Baby Blue Stickles to the swirls. The blue star is up on foam tape and so is the aqua circle behind it. The DP is October Afternoon Report Card.

Okay, now go check out all the fun on the Verve Blog. Have an awesome day!
