Viva La Verve

Yay - finally a little me time to work on some personal Christmas cards, and a chance to play along with some challenges!  I've used the November Week 2 sketch from VLV Sketches, and the Rustic Winter theme for the Nov Inspiration Challenge on the Verve Blog:
I used some old Basic Grey papers that were kicking around my craft room, and used my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the stars.  You can't see in the photo, but I used my clear Wink of Stella on the star and to outline the word "brightly" - gives it a little glimmer.  I haven't distressed a card in a while, so had fun grunging up the edges a bit, and used my sewing machine around the circle & banner.  The stamp set is Verve's Peace on Earth.

Beautiful! It looks very Verve to me... I love the stamp you chose, and JT's cards often look awesomely grunged like this! You did a fabulous job!

This is just BEAUTIFUL, Karen! Love the distressed and stitched edges and perfect amount of shabbiness. Thanks for playing along with VLV!
