Verve Looking for Love Release Challenge #1

I made this card for the first Verve Looking for Love Challenge. It was a color challenge, using Riding Hood Red, Blush Blossom, and Kraft. Not a combo I've used before, but I like it! This is a horrible photo, but I'm actually pretty happy with how the card turned out in real life. And I LOVE Papertrey's new Fresh Snow Palette ink! The coverage is the best I've ever seen and I'm not sure I'll ever use my SU white pigment ink or white Staz-on ever again!

The background and focal image were created with PTI's Beautiful Blooms. The focal image is made up of both the small and large solid flower, layered together with a dimensional. A clear gemstone in the center of the flower finished it off. The strip of Blush Blossom is paper pierced and then layered on Riding Hood red. The sentiment, from PTI's Birthday Basics, is stamped in Close to Cocoa. That's it!


  1. Jess this is so pretty!! I really like where you put the RHR on this and I was wondering about that snow color, looks fantastic!

  2. What a beautiful card Jess. I love the simple, classic layout and all the flowers in the background in white. You did a great job with the color combo.

  3. COOL!!! I Love the White on Kraft!
