I went with the red and cream color combo, and found paper by K & Co. that somewhat replicates the look of the alternating red and white pattern in the quilted place mat.
On my original card, I just strictly followed the sketch, and when I was done, it seemed kind of blah, so I added (what else?!) some flowers.
Here are a few closeup shots. First, some bling around the Verve sentiment from the set "Kindred Spirits."
The center of the flower is a Prima sequin cluster that I found at Archiver's.
I also finished the inside of this card and the back. This card is 6" square.
For week 2 of VLV, here's the sketch and the inspirational photo I used for my color scheme.
I used Verve's set "Budding Blossoms" as I thought the flowers in it looked like the ones in the inspiration photo. I stamped the leaves in SU! Old Olive and the flowers in SU! Purely Pomegranate. The background was embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The dp are both older designs from SU! It was in one of the Christmas packs a couple of years ago. I mounted my flowers on foam tape for more dimension. This card is a standard A2.
Thanks for stopping by!
