To help me combine both March Verve Release challenges, I got the chance to use Fall to Layout #81. What better place to find a CAS sketch than at Clean and Simple Stamping? And I loved this sketch!!! In order to meet the flower requirement of the Verve CAS challenge I used die cuts (I didn't have very many flower stamps that would work well). And to make the sketch more my own I added some faux stitching around the edges. (That part made me a little nervous as I didn't want to have to scrap it and start again). I didn't have a verve stamp that fit nicely in the sentiment area so I found an alternative.
I have to admit that the colour combo scared me a little. A little too retro, but I think once I got the hang of it, the colours made a really striking combination! I'm going to have to try these colours again! Meanwhile, I've got to get a move on dinner and laundry! Have a fantastic evening.
