Viva La Verve Card of Encouragement

I have two friends looking for office jobs right now. I love them dearly and pray for them regularly that God will open the right doors for the job He has planned for them. One of them is partial to pink, so this is her card, inspired by the Viva La Verve April sketch for week 3 and the lovely palette suggested by the ladies at CR84FN Color Challenge #52.

I used the office ledger paper because she works with accounting. The overhead light made a shadow on the sentiment which says, "All things are possible." I cut out a piece of the banner paper then cut matching flags from the remainder to make it more 3-D. Most of the banner pieces have hearts, just like the Kraft background circle. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the verse and the sentiment and used a stipple brush to brush Cotton Candy ink over the verse, making it darker near the edges of the circle. The mocha pearls and the felt rose were the final touches. The stamps were Verve's Jeremiah 29:11 Plain Jane and Joy for the Journey set.
