You've Stolen My Heart

Hello! Happy Monday! I can't believe it's the last week in January... already this year is flying by! I'm back with more Verve! I made this card for Viva La Verve! At Home with Verve, January week 2. This was the inspiration piece and a here's a look at Amber's sketch.

I was drawn to the colors of the wall and rug and chose some Basic Grey Granola patterned paper which was perfect with its yellows, greens and dark brown. The little monkey image is from one of Verve's newest sets, Love Monkey. I paper-pieced his belly and added a rhinestone heart to emphasize the sentiment, "You've Stolen My Heart". I embossed the New Leaf panel with Retro Diamonds, added some stitching and some dark brown ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
