Viva La Verve...Hello Friend

Morning blog friends! I've designed a card using this week's Viva La Verve sketch hosted by Sarah:

I purchased some new trim from Stampin' Up!...isn't that floral ribbon delish? It was on backorder and my demo just delivered it yesterday. I added a Pennant Trim die underneath it and a trio of pearls to the right. The sentiment is from Hope Blooms and that's stamped on a Banner Bundle die set. 

Here's Sarah's sketch:

Here's the stamp set:

And the dies:

Here's the down low on participating in Verve's Friday sketches:
Every Friday our talented Divas host a little Viva la Verve (VLV for short) sketch challenge for you! Play along with all of the sketches for a given month by uploading your cards using that month's sketches to our SCS gallery using the proper keywords and then posting all of your links in the Sketch Champions thread (posted the last week of each series of sketches). Do that by the entry deadline (the last Thursday of the month) and you'll be entered into a random drawing for a $100 e-gift certificate to the Verve Store!

Do I have to use Verve Stamps?
Nope. We're equal opportunity stampers around these parts. Of course, we do LOVE to see you shine your Verve if you've got it! And we might just pick some mystery prize winners every now and then 
from the cards that shine a little Verve.
