I Did It! Verve Challenge

Busy, busy day today! I just returned from another heartbreak tennis match. I normally play doubles, but today was my first EVER competitive singles match, and I am no spring chicken. (See picture of grandbaby here!) And I lost in the 3rd set tie breaker. It looked like this: 1st set 6-3, 2nd set 3-6, third set tie breaker 6-10. UGH! It's only 100 degrees here in Houston - all that sweating for nothing!!! I thought some of your tennis fans might appreciate this tidbit.

I just finished the last of the Verve Release Challenge! Later I'll post a picture of the 5 cards I made from their 5 sketches. It's so fun trying new things!

(All supplies from Stampin' Up!) I stamped the Upsy Daisy in black craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice. I love that stuff, if you haven't noticed yet. Too bad it doesn't photograph well, but, then again, it could be the photographer... I Then I cut it out using the coluzzle cutter. Finally I brayered the top with Baja Breeze and the bottom with Kiwi Kiss and sponged the edges with black.

Then I cut 2 circles a size bigger in Black and Kiwi Kiss. I removed the guard from my corner rounder and scallop the edge of the Kiwi Kiss circle and layered it all up. I'll have to do a little tutorial on that later, but not today as I have 18 women coming over tomorrow night for a stamp camp! Yikes! I've got to get ready....

The base is Black and white layers with angle cut Urban Garden paper on top. The ribbon is tied around the white cs and pattern paper layer. Then I added designer hardware and buttons to the bottom corner. Because the base is black I added a layer of white and the pattern paper inside with a circle of the embossed flowers to the left of the sentiment. Here's a close up of the inside:

It was fun playing along with these challenges.
