Viva La Verve Sketch - April Week 4, Oh Happy Day

This is my second and last post today for the Viva La Verve challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. When I finished it, I thought it was my favorite from the 5 sketches they had for April.


I used papers from Graphic45 "Secret Garden" along with some Basic Grey Urban Prairie for the background. I just had to use that adorable daisy seed packet for the larger banner. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Oval to make the green Bazzill die cut piece. Then I cut the lavender scallop with Cricut Art Philosophy and the banner for the text with Cricut Artiste and used the matching CTMH stamp for the banner. (It's intended to be a birthday sentiment, but I hope to give it to a scrapbooking friend who is retiring from teaching this month.) I had seen the challenge at Creative Moments  to use brads and I cheered because I have a jillion lavender brads (and other colors) from the time I designed one of our daughters' wedding album. I'm sure the lovely silver streaked lavender ribbon came from that period as well. I used CTMH mocha pearls in the centers of the yellow Prima blossoms.

I am sharing this card with the following challenges:
