Verve Blog Party Challenge #1

I've been an admirer of Verve Stamps for quite a while. Finally on my last shopping spree for my Christmas presents I ordered a couple to get "My Verve On". LOL!
I was pleased today when I was looking at my google reader and I saw that Verve was having a Thankful Hearts Blog Party to release their new sets. I thought it would be fun to play along with a few of their challenges, starting with Challenge #1--a color challenge.

Here's what I came up with for this fun color challenge~


supplies:
What I did:
This was such a different process for me on this card, I just hope it works! I started by cutting out a SU top note in black. Then I sort of fidgeted around with things until I figured out a layout. I cut a second top note die out of white and cut around the edge of it on the perforated lines. I used my corner rounder on the old olive piece.
I used my flowers #3 Sizzix texturz plate for the embossing on the old olive piece and then sponged more old olive ink on top of it to make the embossing a bit more prominent. I also sponged old olive on the white top note die.
Next I stamped my sentiment in basic black. I stamped the butterfly next to the sentiment in old olive. Then stamped another one in bermuda bay that I cut out and layered over the old olive one. I added a few of the swirls in bermuda bay to the corners. To finish it off I added a few embellishments. Gasp, as I was finishing I realized there wasn't any sparkle! LOL! So I added a few touches to the butterfly with my clear copic glitter pen.

This was a fun card for me and a challenge as I didn't color anything!! Really a rare thing for me but I liked it!!
