Celebrate New Life with Verve

We have a ministry in our church called Baby Grace. It's designed to give prayer support and funnel donated items to young, new parents. We also try to send cards to them for different occassions. This is one I'm adding to my stash. I chose the theme from Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #114 - Celebrate New Life.  I just loved the digital image of the rabbit holding baby ducks.  I used the Viva La Verve Sketch for the 2nd week of April 2012.

I combined the  floral paper with flowers that are glittered along the edges to go with Sugar Creek Hollow's Challenge #6 - Floral.  It's definitely a shabby chic card.  I also chose the elements to go with Our Creative Corner's challenge "In Your Easter Bonnet" to include things you would have on your bonnet. I included the flowers, leaves, pearls, buttons, and organdy ribbon.

I made my tag a little differently than I would usually do. I left it long horizontally and clipped the top two corners. The twine that's tied to the button is also wrapped through the tag. I inked the edges of all of the papers with Cocoa ink.

Your version of the sketch is fab! I like that you have used the same design paper for the background panels, and the colors on your paper are perfect to your choice of image. A lovely card!
