Viva La Verve - Call to Me


I followed this week's Viva La Verve sketch for my card this morning.  This adorable MME Bluebell paper from Stamp Simply makes such a pretty background for the Jeremiah 33:3 verse and the cluster of flowers.   I cut the flowers from scraps of paper using the Surely Goodness dies, then spritzed them with water and crumpled them.  When they were dry I added the buttons and layered them on a sprig cut with a Spellbinders die.

I'm also entering my card in the Curtain Call: Farm Fresh challenge.  The colors, the sprig of leaves, the flowers, the weathered background, the buttons... they all put me in mind of the best parts of country life.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
