Cracked Flower

Don't forget about my two BIG Blog Candies found here.

Well, I am still working on my week of fun challenges for the Verve release. I adore all of their challenges, so it has been a fun week. My work has been great, so I have really enjoyed the small crafting breaks I get to unwind. Here is the fun color combo for the Verve Release challenge.
I combined this with the CPS sketch #133 found here
Isnt' that an interesting sketch. Here is my card
Well, this was a fun one to make. I am so glad I have that border punch. It made the swirls easier to do, now if you ask me the name of that punch, I have no idea but Michaels is where I got it :)
Did you notice the cracked glass technique? I have seen it many times, but I have never tried it until now. Why you ask did I finally break out my heavy embossing from Stampin Up, well Gina K is FABULOUS and she showed this technique at Stamp TV today. It was really much easier than I would have guessed. A little tip, the first layer I put on (and where I normally quit) it flies all over and you think it isn't working at all, well keep on going it is just how it is supposed to be.
It's a good life!

This is so pretty! I keep wanting to play with this technique but with three kids it seems like all my cards have to be made QUICKLY! LOL!
