Verve February Challenge

I found some time to play in the Verve Sketch Challenge today.  I went ahead and did all 4 sketches, along with a holder and now I have one awesome gift for future use!  I kept the color scheme the same - night of navy, sand and kraft.  I adore sets of cards like this - different, but the same.  I also used Stamp TV's Victorian Distressed Background on all the cards.  This was a very fun technique!


Week 1 sketch -
I used Verve stamp set Dream Big

















Week 2 - I used Verve Celebration of Thanks, along with my favorite, Fluttering By.



















Week 3 - Verve set Fancy Florals Remixed.  I did some of my totally fun hand stitching (instead of machine) since I so can not sew a straight line..
















Week 4 - Verve set One Person.





I really love that background technique!  It makes your paper look like designer paper -- but I MADE IT!  Love that!


Here is the completed set.  These cards are 5.5 x 5.5.  They fit, with the envies, into my recycled PTI shipping container that their stamps come in!  I covered it in paper to match the cards and WA LA - fabulous gift for someone.... sometime.  [I like to be prepared for a last minute gift]  I have to thank the Divas, one thing about Verve sketches, they practically make the card!  All I needed was to figure color and stamp sets.  That's the easy part for me!!  
Thanks for stopping by - have a great week end!!
