VLV Happy Birthday
Today is Friday and time for another Viva la Verve Sketch! This week's hostess is Shannan!! I decided to use the Small Celebrations set from Verve along with some of the Sugar Chic Collection from Heidi Swapp. I created the arrows on the sketch with the Ribbon Banner Die. I die cut two banners out of black patterned paper and then I just kept slidingabout 1/4" of the paper outside of the bottom of the die and cutting to end up with the arrows for the sketch. (hope that made sense!)
I added some pink rhinestones along the frame. The polka dot ribbon is from Stampin Up and I thought it matched the papers nicely. As a finishing touch, I added messy stitches to the card. We hope you'll come play along with this week's sketch!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
