February Viva La Verve #2

Another Viva la Verve Challenge here.  Julee I apologize that I didn't use a verve stamp for this one but I only have one set to inspire me.

I was immediately drawn to this dining room with the yellow, wood, cream and green fern accents.  Would you consider it contemporary country?  I really like that table!  This room has a really homey feel.  Actually I could see myself decorating this way.  So there you go!  Now you know a little more about my style.

I knew I wanted to focus on that mellow yellow but I was stumped after that.  I finally settled on chocolate and vanilla and came across my stash of Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper.  Now I was on a roll.   Add in a little bit of ribbon and buttons and tada.  You've got a chic country card:)  I don't usually do a lot of yellow.  I'm so scared of overdoing it!   I could have added some stitching I guess? and can you think of a better way that I could have displayed my sentiment panel?  It just doesn't seem very finished the way I've done it here.  I still like it though and I'm sure some friend of mine will like the thought.

Hope you like it and have a Marvelous Monday!  Happy day, Happy crafting!

  1. Great layout and colour blocking! I think you put the sentiment in exactly the right spot. It's balanced out by the two ribbon tabs (great touch).
