VSWCMD2 and Embellish Magazine challenge

I have been seeing tons of these Verve sketches being done by my fellow blog friends
and I finally had time to play last night after the house was quiet!
I ordered 2 Verve stamp sets quite a while ago and figured I should give them some ink again!
So here is the first sketch I played with:

I used some new (to me) paper by October Afternoon for my side panel.  It
matches one side of the Diamonds Impression Plate from PTI perfectly!


The leaves were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed on Soft Stone carstock. 
It is just the softest grey there is....I love it.  I don't know why I had never opened it until just recently!


Here is the color inspiration piece from Embellish magazine and I hope my stamped leaf
will do for "background stamping".


Thanks for stopping by and stay posted because I played with another Verve sketch last
night too and will post that later today.
