Verve Release Color Challenge


The new Verve release was on Black Friday. I tried to get to all the challenges, found on the Verve Blog, but only did four out of five. This was the first challenge, a color one. To use black, white, turquoise, and green. Seemed like an unlikely color combo to me, but I loved it when it came together. Fun and different for a holiday card!
A nasty stomach bug hit our house in the middle of the night last night. Yucko! It's the two older guys. We're trying to keep the little ones away from them, especially the baby. Hope we can contain it. My oldest is starting to feel better, though, cause he asked for a salami sandwich for lunch. No, he didn't get one, not on a queasy stomach! No good would have come of that I'm sure.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope to update more regularly this week, I've got some cards made and ready to go!

The CB texture on the label is such a great touch; how come I never thought to do that? Good thing I have talented friends to inspire me!

Such an elegant card!!
