Viva la Verve -- May All Your Dreams Come True

Hello! I had a chance to play with the final Viva la Verve sketch for January! This is my card for the week 4 challenge (all details here in the Verve Splitcoast forum).

I started by embossing the frame from Framed Wishes in black. I used a Spellbinders Long Rectangle Nestabilities die to cut part of the frame (the die was the height that I wanted to cut my frame, but it was too long), then I slid my frame over and cut the other side of the frame. Next, I die cut a circle out of the frame and embossed the sentiment, "May All Your Dreams Come True" (from Always on Mind) directly onto my black mat, then I popped the frame over it. Finally, I added some stitching, dyed seam binding ribbon and a few black flatback pearls from Pizzazz Apenty.

My layout is based upon Sankari's fabulous sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
