Love, and a Little Chocolate

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Hi Friends! I'll have two posts tonight, to finish up my cards for the Viva la Verve July sketch challenge, so I'll make them short.
I recently received an order from Verve, and the Charles Schultz sentiment stamp was in a little goodie bag, along with several other items. What a fab quote!

The Week 4 sketch had me baffled for a little while, but I like how it came together in the end--especially with the torn sections.

I left the inside blank, but used torn edges to coordinate with the card front.

That's all for now. I'll be back in a little while with another Verve challenge card.

Thanks for stopping by! See you in a bit!

This is one of my favorites of yours Cheryl. I like the embossed background and torn paper. Fabulous girl!

Did you make this for CR84FN too? That is the exact color combo?
