Happy Birthday for November Viva la Verve

Hello friends.  I am sharing a card I made for the November Viva la Verve Sketch.  I love this sketch by Julee so I made a second card with this sketch.
This time I made a birthday card using Verve Kindness Matters (flower) and Cake and Candles (sentiment).  I stamped 2 of the flowers on the back of the striped DSP, fussy cut them out, and sponged SU Bordering Blue ink on the edges of the petals.  I layered them and added pearls to the center.  All the DSP is from an older Momenta Story of Us paper pad matted with black.  The scallop mat is from MFT Bluprints 20.  The white panel is embossed with a retired SU EF.  The sentiment panel is mounted with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,


  1. Ah, this is so lovely, JoAnn! You always make such impeccably crisp layered cards with beautiful pp and sweet details like the scallop frame and the pearl bling!! Happy Sunday! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Another wonderful use of this sketch, JoAnn! You always do so good with mixing papers! The little pearls are so pretty in the center of the flower!

  3. Wonderful take on the sketch. Love the designer papers you used.

  4. Pretty subtle colors! Great birthday card!

  5. Such a beautiful card, JoAnn! Love the soft shading on the flowers and the elegant feel of the papers you chose.
