Verve: Card Carnival

 
Is anyone else thinking TGIF?  I am, even though I have a couple of more days left of work until I head for VACATION to beautiful Colorado!  We are actually going for a family reunion in Estes Park but we are going to be in Denver for a day or two as well.  Can't wait to get back to the beautiful mountains and relax in the cabin!  I should come back refreshed and full of inspiration!  :)
 
So I've been following Verve's Anniversary festivities this week and finally sat down to make at least ONE card for their Customer Card Carnival!  This one is pretty simple using Bloom and Grow, Floral Circle Dies and Rounded Scallop Frame Die.
 
You make a difference

 
This is going in the mail tomorrow to a very special friend of mine and yes I did sacrifice some of those hoarded silver pearls!  You are worth it!  :)
 
I've also created this for the Asymmetry Challenge in the Moxie Fab World
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
 


{You make a difference....}
Stamps:  Bloom and Grow (Verve)
Paper:  SS White, Ripe Avocado, and Bitty Dot DP (PTI)
Ink:  True Black, Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet (PTI)
Dies:  Rounded Scallop Frame, Floral Circle Dies (Verve), Mini Leaves (Taylored Expressions)
Misc:  Silver Pearls (Michaels)

Very pretty card! I haven't found any of those silver pearls yet, but I'm sure I would have a hard time putting them on anything! I would hate for someone to throw them in the trash after keeping the card for a bit! lol

Have a blast on vacation!! You'll be in my neck of the woods, and let me tell you, the weather has been gorgeous - mid 80's and sunny!

I love that silver...always think of Laurie when I see those. Gorgeous card! Have a wonderful time away!!

Way to flash some Verve flowers, Amy :) Love the polka dotted frame too! You can get silver pearls at Michael's still. Think they come in a mixed set now (silver and clear) but still can get them. If you can't get them let me know and I'll send you some happy mail :) Enjoy your time in Colorado!

Wishing you a fabulous vacation! Amazing card too, love the sentiment you used and those little touches of silver beads really add a fabulous touch to your card.

Amy, this is beautiful! I love the colors in that flower and how you stamped the sentiment toward the corner (instead of the center, like I would have done). It looks great! Have fun!!!!!

Beautiful! I love the way you've embraced CAS and clean - you do it so well! Love the flash of pink with the black here - beautiful take on the challenge! Enjoy your R&R!!
