Verve WCD Challenge {VSWCMD4}

This is my second post today!  Scroll down to see a Christmas Card!

Back today with another Verve sketch!  This time I picked #4!  Should I be going in order?  Nah!

So here is my take on this sketch...

I had a super  hard time with the circle!  I had something in bright orange in there before and just had to rip it out and start over!  I don't know why I couldn't make that work, so instead I tried an actual full circle with a little embossing!

I love this Verve sentiment!  It is just beautiful! The perfectionist in me is not loving the smudged Text Style background.  I think I should go fix that!

Going to work on the last 2 sketches!  If you haven't played with these yet, you should!  They are great for getting the creativity flowing!

  4. You know, I had the HARDEST time with this sketch. I'm not sure why as it seemed so easy when I started it. Finally, though, I got something done (you'll see it tomorrow)but yeah it took me almost 3 hours to get this sketch into a card. I was never quite comfy with the circle!! I love your take on it, though, and that sentiement IS really nice.
