Viva La Verve and ColourQ 130

Quickie post today with a card for the Week 4 sketch to round out my Viva La Verve entries for March, and also for the ColourQ #130 combo.

This is supposed to be the clean and simple week for the VLV sketches, but I just couldn’t stop adding things.  And my ‘Berry Sorbet’ isn’t exactly ‘Melon Mambo.’  Oh well.

The above photo doesn’t really show it, but I did add a little Spica glitter pen to the flower petals and yellow centers.  You can see it a little better in the close-up photos below.  I also stamped the leaves with Versamark, but it doesn’t show very well at all.  I didn’t have more time to play around with things, so this is the ‘get it done and call it good’ type of card.

Click on photo to enlarge for details.

Hope you’re all having a good week.

Thanks for stopping by today. ;-)
