Verve Diva Sketch Challenge


These colors are a little bright for me, but they seemed like Dr. Seuss colors to match the quote! Julee at Verve Stamps posted a sketch challenge today, and I finally had time to play! Just trying to channel Dr. Seuss was fun--and so I went a little crazier than usual. Looking at the photo, I think I need to add something to the bottom of the ribbon--maybe I'll get to that later, if the kids take awhile longer at the library. {grin} I kinda wanted the quote image to look like it could slide up and down the ribbon, but didn't want to upload a video. LOL And the line of Dew Drops actually looks straighter in real life, but maybe "skeewumpus," as my mother would say, is more Seussian.

Sweet Saffron


I had to order Parisian Summer paper on my first new catalog order! So Saffron is my favorite color in the world! This pack of paper is supposed to go with Bravo Burgundy, but this pattern just looks more like Perfect Plum to me. I think it works with both colors.
