Viva La Verve March 2012 Sketch Challenge Week 3

Hello! Hope all is well! 
I have a quick post of a card I made last night when I was with my scrapping group!
Most of the girs are scrapping away, and here I am making cards! I do feel guilty as my pages and photos pile up around me, but...oh well! Stamping is my first love!!!!!

And I wanted to make a card using this great sketch for
Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge by Maureen Plut:

And....here is my card!

The colors are very muted in this photo! The papers are from My Mind's Eye-Lost & Found-Portobello Road 6x6 pad. They are gorgeous!!!!!! I wish my camera would do them justice!
So the papers made this card! Not much stamping!

I used the Classy Label Die (Verve) for the sentiment panel. It was stamped with the Love Notes (Verve) stamps set. The words are from a "thank you for your purchase" gift from Verve. The scallops were made with a SU scallop punch. I just cut it in two and adhered the 2 halves to the top and bottom of the Classy Label die cut. All of the pieces were inked with London Fog (Memento) ink.
 I put  pale blue ribbon behind the sentiment panel and then tied some twine to the left side. 
This was all adhered to a Kraft card base.

Thanks for stopping by!
