Because of You... Viva La Verve!

Hi all! Tomorrow is the last day of July, so all of the Viva La Verve challenges are due then. I still have one more to finish besides this one. I used Amber's Viva La Verve sketch, VLVJul05. The "twist" was to add texture.

I loved this card of Julee's and how she used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on a few of her layers. It might be hard to see on my card, but I embossed the pink patterned paper, solid black cardstock and my sentiment panel with the same folder. I took a little liberty with the sketch and substituted the squiggly bracket die cut {partially covered by the bow} for the circle panel.

Thanks for stopping by!
