Viva La Verve and CR84FN

A week or so ago, I bought a new stack of paper/cardstock – the Lemon Flower Stack by DCWV.  It has some really pretty yellow, green, gray, black, and silver colors in delightful patterns, and I thought I would grab it to help me prepare for the yellow challenges that inevitably arise when I least expect or want them.  At least I’ll have pretty paper on hand to help inspire me and get me in the mood a little more, since we know that yellow by itself will not do a darn thing for me! LOL! ;-D

Then the CR84FN #49 challenge turned out to be yellow, craft, and gray, so I figured ‘why not?’ and used the Viva La Verve March Week 1 sketch for further inspiration in creating this card:

I also used my Verve Framed Wishes stamp for this one, which I haven’t used since purchasing it.  So I was happy about that.  These flowers were all fussy cut from one of the 12×12 sheets from the paper Stack as Hubby and I were watching the college basketball game at 11:30 pm last night.  (I had ignored the fact that basketball is sooooo NOT worth staying up that late!  I have definitely been sleep walking today!)
