Today's the Day! - Verve Release Party

That's right! It's just a few hours away, which means if you want to participate in those FABULOUS Release Week Challenges, you better get a move on!! :-) I thought I'd share a few more of the projects I made for those challenges before the festivities kick off in the Verve Forum at 9 PM Eastern tonight!
I created this card for Amber's Color Challenge, which was to use Turquoise, Black and Gray on your project. At first I wasn't really feeling it, but once I pulled out my paper and started playing I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! What do you think? I used the new Love's Flower (which you can see more of today over on the Verve Blog) along with Bountiful Backgrounds (are you tired of those polka dots yet??). I clear embossed the sentiment and colored the flower with Copic Markers and finally added a little rhinestone to the flower center "for interest" (wink wink Sarah!).

And this one is for Teresa's Sketch Challenge. Now, I have to tell you that I was mighty intimidated by all the layers on Teresa's sketch. Teresa has a way of effortlessly making about a gazillion layers look absolutely stunning and I have a way of making them look like a jumbled pile of crap! But I tried to just take a deep breath, keep it simple and look! It didn't turn out half bad! (if you can ignore the fact that you can see some dimensional adhesive peeking out of my sentiment layer...ha!). I used the new Be Mine Plain Jane on this card along with my newest favorite tool, my Apron Lace border punch, and a Heidi Swapp heart ghost shape! The blue polka-dot DP is from SEI. The rest is pretty self-explanatory I think.

I hope you'll join us tonight for the Release Party! It's going to be LOTS of fun!!
