Enjoy my friend

I am so excited to have a color combo from Dawn to work on! There is no way I would have ever put this together! It really is quite neat and I love a good challenge.
I combined the color combo with the Viva La Verve challenge over on the Verve blog. I have all of my cards done for the month and even a few days early!
Here is my creation
I also wanted to add a close up to show some of the details
What do you think? I was excited about the tag twist. I haven't used my tags for spring set, so I didn't by the autumn tags or the halloween tags from PTI. I like how this turned out. I am going to use this along with another element I have been thinking about for my hostess gift set.

On this card I also used the text set for the first time as well. I think this is going to be a fun one for me to keep on hand for lots of layering. I so wanted the distressing element. I have been on the fence about the tea inks from PTI and I have also been looking at the ranger distressing ink and tool. The jurry is still out on this one. I do like this look though, so I am going to keep working on it. I really liked the paper piercing addition for the large cirlce element. It seemed to be just the right touch.
Oh, it is the 25th, one of my favorite days of the month now LOL! As you know it is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop tonight, so come back to see the newest creation.
It's a good life!
