Very Versatile Verses...

the title of today's limited supply challenge on SCS, found here:

This was a good challenge for me since I rarely use sentiments (other than one or two words) on the front of my cards. I used the colors from this weeks color challenge and attempted to incorporate the sketch for the week but I couldn't quite make it work so I did half the sketch! I also used watercolor paper (ways to use it challenge) for my sentiment. Whew! I watercolored two words with my perfect plum pad (the closest I have to pale plum) and I also used my new Cuttlebug flowers dies...the bottom scallop was inspired by Toy on SCS...that and the sentiment are raised on leftover stamp rubber...only the patterned paper and the flower in the back are actually on the card front. The front is stamped with swirls and blossoms in close to cocoa...I used my rectangle punch to cut notches for the cord to stay on the card. I pierced the top and side of the card as well. I outlined the sentiment and the scallop edges with my Stardust pen...the flower on the scallop is a Michaels $1 stamp - the heart is colored with the stardust pen too. Finally, I snipped off the top edges, snipped again and re-adhered just the corners for a different look.

See you soon...
