Viva la Verve -- Fun in the Sun!

Hello there! Happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week.. I've been buried in projects and I now have 10 scheduled posts for next week... EEEKS! As I was getting ready to clean up my craft room, I ran across the newest Viva la Verve sketch and decided to play along just for fun!

I used Verve's Relax (which just so happens to be on sale right now) and paired it with some paper from Fancy Pants Beach Bum. I loved the cool beachy scene in the background and didn't want to cover it up, so I just added a sheet of vellum over part of it and added some stitching to mimic the middle panel of the sketch. I stamped the Sweet Scallop Tag directly onto a sheet of lined patterned paper and cut it out with the  Sweet Scallop Die. Then I stamped my sentiment by combining Wild Honey and Stormy Sky distress inks (so the yellow + blue made green.. :)).

Since May literally flew by for me, I thought I'd get a head start on the first Viva la Verve June week 1 --all the details are on SCS HERE. Here's a look at Amber's sketch:
