Viva la Verve With Love

Hello! I'm trying to start the new year off by playing in some of my favorite challenges and staying on top of them as well.. which means not waiting until the last week of the month to "catch" up on Viva la Verve challenges! This is my card for the week 1 challenge (all details here in the Verve Splitcoast forum).

This week is my hubby, Dan's, birthday, and I usually try to make him two cards - one from me and one from Sabrina. For mine, I started off with some coordinating paper from Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 which hopefully he won't think is too girly :) ... I created my label by first stamping the Verve Vintage Oval Frame stamp then cutting it out with the coordinating Vintage Oval Die. My embossed sentiment (which reads "With love, from me to you") is from Feeling Groovy.

Here's the sketch by Amber:
