Viva La Verve June week 2

I made this card for my granddaughter to give to her Mom on her birthday later this month. It was made for the VLVJun02 sketch challenge with a twist. This week's twist is to use something "new". What's new on this card are 2 Verve stamps I just bought. One is the Because of You set, and the other is a single flower image that matches those in the set. I stamped them with Versamark, embossed them with white ep and then colored them in with some Cool Caribbean reinker and an aqua brush. I cut them out and popped them up on foam tape and added a couple turquoise gemstones. The leaves were made with an oval punch and run through the crimper. The blue dsp is by Basic Grey (2 scoops) and I also used Prismatics Birchtone in shades of light and dark. The tiny scalloped border was done with an EK border punch, and if you click on the photo to enlarge it, you'll see the piercing I did along the edges of the white cardstock base. Ribbon was from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
