I created my card for today with my riding instructor's birthday in mind. The last couple of years, she's celebrated her day along with the students in her Cross Country Clinic, as it's on the second of August. It's my second year of the clinic and I'm loving every minute of it thusfar - and how better than to make her a special card with some of my favorite Verve stamps. I actually used three sets for the creation of this card.
I used the Mojo Monday Week 149 sketch as my base and the colors from Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 39, which I'd adored a two weeks ago. I started with the butterfly from Blue Skies and inked it up in craft white, then embossed with hologram highlights on the wild wasabi paper. I also used the smaller butterfly for the background white paper. The sentiment came from Big Wish - and oddly enough, I'd forgotten about it and thought "I really wish Verve had another birthday set with some Happy Birthday sentiments". Low & behold, I rediscovered my Big Wish set a moment later. On the inside, I used Feel the Sun and the smaller butterfly again from Blue Skies.
It's amazing how well the sets work together to create a cohesive card....I love it!
