Viva la Verve -- How Sweet of You

Hello! I hope you're having a great week so far! I made this card using the first Viva la Verve sketch for February! You can find all details here in the Verve Splitcoast forum.

I started by pulling out some coordinating patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink collection, layered and stitched them together. I used Verve's Happy Hello (currently on sale!) to stamp the circle frame and sentiment, then I used a circle punch. I popped this little frame on top of a round yo-yo that I made out of some Moda fabric. I finished it off simply with a few pink rhinestones and some yummy Always Aqua baker's twine from Pizzazz Aplenty.

My layout is based on Amber's fabulous sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
