This is for the Viva la Verve July Sketch Challenge - Week 2
I spent way too much time making this card, but I'm really happy with how it finally turned out. I started Sunday evening and finally finished it late Monday afternoon. Aside from the time factor, I really enjoyed putting this card together because the Verve sketch was one I really liked, and for once I had enough extra paper that I was able to experiment with stamping and using embellishments without the worry of ruining something. Actually, that's why it took me so long to finish the card because I did make quite a few mistakes in the process and had to redo things a few times until I got it right. I always wonder how long it takes other people to make cards or whether I am the only one who needs a whole day to make one card.
Thank you so much for leaving comments. I appreciate each and every one.

I'm here to tell ya that you're NOT the only one that takes a day or two or three to finish one card! Sometimes I just cannot get a card to look right, so I keep coming back trying to fix parts of it until I'm happy with it. Your card is glorious! So tasteful and elegant. TFS.
