VLV Aug Week 5 Sketch – Play Date Cafe #96

I had to cram this morning to get my last Viva La Verve card in so that I could post it today and enter it before the deadline next week, because I will not have any time next week for crafting.  ((waaah!! crying and pouting))

This is for the Week 5 Sketch, by Teresa Kline.  I also used the colors from Play Date Cafe #96 using Mint, Coral, and Ivory.  As usual, with my fabulous photography skills, my corals look more pink than coral.  (sigh)  One of these days, I might actually figure out how to photograph coral and purple!!

My creation:

It just makes me so happy when I have an opportunity to use my little crocheted flowers!  I’m not sure I would reach for these colors first, either.  But they are just GORGEOUS together, so I’m thinking I should use them again sometime.

My new Verve purchases came in the mail this past week, and I was eager to get some of them inky and play around.  I just LOVE them!  So much fun.

Sorry I don’t have much time to chit-chat – I have so very much to do today and tomorrow.  This next week should be interesting!

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
