It's your day!

This is going to be a big blogging week LOL! I love doing the verve challenges and there are a ton this week. I am also working ahead on all of my birthday cards for the month of July since I am going to be gone for some of it. Needless to say you will soon be bombarded with Birthday and challenge cards LOL!

Here is a combo card. It is a Viva La Verve sketch with a twist challenge and also Dawn's color combo. I am totally falling in love with color combos. It really pushes me out of my norm and it is absolutely fabulous!!! Here is Dawn's color combo
Here is the link for this very fun Viva La Verve challenge
Here is my fun creation.
I must also gush a little about one of my fun recent purchases that I now find priceless LOL! I recently purchased 4 cards from Dawn's Esty shop and wowziers!!! If you thought for a minute that these cards look good on her blog, they are delicious in person. I few of these elements are from one of her cards that I got.
The background of the cream part is stamped in champaigne versa mark with some words from star prints like her background. Another detail that I wouldn't have realized until I had one of those beauties in my hot little hands is how much dimension she has on her cards. The knot on the ribbon with the star attached is a detail right from this same card. Isn't that fun!
Back to the twist for this challenge. It was about 3s. You had to use 3 stamp sets, 3 cardstock colors and 3 embilishments. This was a bit of a challenge for me as well, but I think it worked out just fine. Can you guess what card I bought from Dawn that inspired this card?
It's a good life!
