SFYTT Technical Difficulties...

My card is completed and ready to be photographed, but where is my camera?! As soon as I find it, I'll be back with my complete SFYTT post. For now, here is Jen's sketch and links to the rest of the SFYTT crew!

ETA: I found the camera...in one of the places I'd already looked once, ugh! Oh, and did I tell you how hot and humid it is here in Ellsworth, WI today? Yeah, pretty much goes with my day so far! Ok, on with my SFYTT ala Verve card!



It's a big day over at Verve today with new releases and such, so I used an absolutely wonderful Verve set for my SFYTT card, Just For You.



I used one of my favorite color combos here with a bit of linen thread, buttons and punched branches flanking the layered flower. After punching the black branches, I looked at the leftover scrap and thought it would compliment the card perfectly, so I used it as the lower horizontal layer...love it when things just work out like that. See, my day wasn't going to horribly after all!

ETA: I'm once again adding to my post today. After looking through Just For You, I decided to make another card and this one came together so quickly...grabbing scraps here and there on my stamp table: wide striped ribbon, buttons and music paper all within reach. Lots of distressing on the sentiment panel done by rolling the paper this way and that, tugging at the edges and sponging with PTI's Vintage Inks.



Here's a detail of the sentiment panel...



Speaking of Verve, Jen has a great giveaway prize for participating in this week's sketch, so be sure to check it out and get stamping! Can't wait to see what other Verve-a-liciousness is waiting, so let's see who else is getting their Verve on today!

I love both of your cards, but I think my favorite is the one with all of the buttons and music themed paper.
