Viva la Verve -- Happy Spring

Hello! Happy Friday! Today I have a card using the Viva la Verve March Week 2 sketch. You can find all the details in the Verve forum on Splitcoast.

I had a little bit of time to play with some new yummy paper from Pink Paislee -- Butterfly Garden collection. The soft pastels are right up my alley, so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more! For my sentiment panel, I started by stamping the frame from Verve's Vintage Oval Frame. Next I die cut it using the custom Vintage Oval Die. "Happy Spring" is from Easter Joy. I added one of my homemade crochet roses, some pearls and stick pin from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Here's the fun sketch by Charmaine:
