Looking For Love...The Final Sketch

I AM A VERVE CHALLENGE CHAMPION....heheheehehe, I have been DYING to do that for days, LOL!! So, for this months Verve Stamps release they are holding four challenges, 3 sketches and a color challenge. Once you get them all done, you have to put your name in the I am a Verve challenge champion thread. The winner, or rather, two winners, will receive the whole release...me likey free stamps, LOL!! For this card, I used my yet to be inked Thankful Blossoms. I am so proud, I am two sets away from inking all my Verve sets at least once. That is one of my "goals" this year...to use what I have already bought. I am not gonna lie and say I won't buy anything new...gotta keep the economy stimulated, but I am going to make a very REAL attempt to use all the stamps I have bought up until this point....I figure if I use two new stamps/stamp sets a day, I will be done using all of them in 2012(totally kidding, I will be done way before 2012..maybe 2011, hehe). Anywho..I stamped the "flower(not sure what you REALLY call it, but in Jessie land-it's a flower)" three times on Gina K. white with my Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with my SU markers. I cut out different layers and glued them on then added a Build A Brad from Su to the center. My DSP is from the Georgia Peach pack from SU. I cut it and it's layer out with my Label 2 nestabilities and pierced a border around the Old Olive layer. The rest is pretty easy to figure out!! I am entering this card into Jen del Muro's Blog Tart giveaway(for lack of a better word). Her contest is HUGE and for a VERY good cause. The rules of the challenge are to make one card, MAIL it to the specified charity(Dallas Baptist University), and then enter all your info on the link provided. Verve Stamps is one of the sponsors along with all my favorite stamp companies!! That is one thing that I LOVE about the stamping industry...we sure know how to pull together and support each other!! For more info on Jen's giveaway, you can check out her newly GORGEOUS blog!! By the way, you can only be entered one time, but you can make and mail as many as you like!! Mine is already in an envie to be mailed out tomorrow!!
That is it for me now!! I am off to make a starry card(for today's Ways To Use It challenge), see ya soon!!
