Viva la Verve Challenge #2

This was my card for Viva la Verve Challenge #2. The twist for this sketch was to use no patterned paper on your card. This sketch was definitely a stretch for me from my usual layouts, but the card surprisingly came together fairly quickly.

The main image and the vine stamp I used to create the background are both from PTI's Beyond Basic Borders set and were stamped using PTI's Spring Moss ink on PTI white cardstock. I cut and embossed the Chocolate Chip circle using my nestabilities and created the ovals with my Marvy giga scallop and mega classic oval punches. The strip of kraft cardstock is from PTI, as is the Ripe Avocado ribbon and Ripe Avocado cardstock. The clear gemstones are from the beading section of Joann's, the green buttons have been in my SU stash for ages, and the white buttons are from the new PTI vintage button collection.


  1. So pretty! I love the background, and the gems on the main image. I'm looking forward to seeing what you did for the other challenges!

  2. Pretty card Jess! Love the bling and buttons with it. :)

  3. OMG, so cute!!! I love this card, especially how you made the brackets with the image! It looks really cute!

  4. That is a cool layout!
    Now I want that set MORE. Great.
    Must come first!

    You did a great job!
