Miss You Like Crazy

The latest Viva la Verve Challenge with a twist was to use something "new". For my card, I used some new patterned paper that I bought a while ago at Costco. . .I just don't know who actually makes the paper. It came in a really nice expandable file and there's TONS of it! The other "new" thing on my card is my Labels 4 Nestabilities!

I used the Up Up and Away set from Verve Stamps. I decided to do some paper piecing on my hot air balloon rather than color it in. I like how it ties the background to the image. After I cut the image using the Labels 4 Nestabilities, I sponged with some So Saffron ink to give some dimension. For the sentiment I used an older Verve set called Heartfelt Phrases. Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Up Up and Away, Heartfelt Phrases (Verve Stamps); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), So Saffron (SU); Paper- Blue Bayou, So Saffron (SU), patterned paper from Costco; Accessories- ribbon (SU), border punch (EK Success), paper piercer, white gel pen, Labels 4 Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5
