WOW 2 post in one day...

Trust me this will not be a recurring occurance; but I was so caught up in the Looking for Love Release Week Challenge - I have become obsessed with completing it!

This is the 2nd one in the Verve challenge and I played along with the ColorThrowdown Challenge this week.

For the layout I inked up
one of my many negelected Stamping Bella stamps - loopy daisy which is stamped with SU's basic black on Very
Vanilla and used oval Nesties to cut
the image out, it is mounted on SU's Mellow Moss.

The card base is SU's Baja Breeze, layered with Mellow Moss and a layer of Baja Breeze which I embossed with Cuttlebugs Petals and Swirls. I coloured the image with a blender pen using re-inkers in Mellow Moss and Baja Breeze then added some dazzling diamonds to the image.

Along the edge I added some glass pearls in baby blue from Stamping Bella. The ribbon is SU''s taffeta in Mellow Moss

These were 2 great challenges; thanks to both for the
inspiration & only 1 card to go for the Verve challenge!!

Have a great night

Good job on the challenges---I was hoping to do the Verve ones, but....time got away! This is a fun card, I've not ever seen this image, but it looks great with these colors and the CB'd background!
Thanks for playing with us & stop back again!
