VLVMar2011 Week #5

Happy Hump Day!

Well...this card is my last one for the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge. Isn't it sweet?

This is the sketch that we needed to follow:

So, I made a card for a very special couple , who will be celebrating their anniversary next week.
I had a lot of fun with this card, because I used a die I have had for quite awhile, but have been afraid to use.  It is the Rolled Flower die from My Favorite Things. Aren't these flowers darling? The trick is to use a light weight card stock, such as the SU Vintage Spring paper , which I used with these flowers.
My other favorite part of this card is the repeat use of the stamp along the bottom panel of the card. You may need to click on the photo to see this detail. This sentiment is from Verve's stamp set  "Text Objects", as well as the hearts. I just love this stamp set!  The sentiment on the white panel is from Unity & Co. I am a member of their Kit of the Month club. Awesome!
I inked all the edges, put it together and added the twine and button!
