Warm Thoughts of You - VLVFeb03 Challenge

Hi again!
Wow - I'm managing a second post today!! This is the third Viva La Verve challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers for February with the *twist* of keeping it monochromatic. Again, I'm using two new release stamps from The Stamp Barn - the gorgeous scroll flower design and the sentiment. I adore this aquamarine blue colour - it's always so soothing and pretty. I don't think you can ever make an 'ugly' card using this colour!
The sketch layout was quite challenging until I figured out what stamps I was going to use then everything fell into place very nicely! The dp is from a Costco stash I have and I coloured the flowers in using Twinkling H20's (very sad to note that LuminArte are closing down their business) :(
I used a couple of Prima flowers with a small white one on top to finish the look. The sentiment was stamped on my oval nesties and I added three pearl brads to the top right hand corner to add some sophisticated bling! One last finishing touch was paper piercing some detail down each side of the bottom panel.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a great evening and hope to see you back here tomorow!
