Too late for Verve....

Verve had a great challenge but the deadline was Friday. On SCS they posted three sketches and a color combo to follow, then you post them to the forum for a chance to win the new release. Yeah, I didn't make it.... but I did make two cards.

I used the SAB Botanical Blossoms set and the colors So Safron, Baja Breeze and Close to Cocoa. I am not sure what I was thinking on this first card. I think I was moving in a good direction until I added the flower in Baja with the Baja layer. It jsut doesn't go. What do you think???

The dsp is Delicate Dots which is also from SAB and so is the ribbon, So Safron 5/8" grosgrain. The buttons are from the Latte Button Bouquet. I also added 1/4" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is a hostess set from the fall, I think.... Looks like I am going to have to peal that Baja flower off and do something different. It's bugging me.

Now this card came together much better. I like it. It's very soft and simple. I stamped the leaf outline in Whisper White on the Baja Breeze cardstock. Hmmm... not a single embellishment or ribbon on this card. Is it too simple????

Maybe this card needs a second look too. I made these cards on Thursday night after a long day. Maybe I was more brain dead then I thought I was.

Well, that's all I have for now. Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I'll have something better to look at later. :)
