Viva La Verve Card

Good Morning!
Can I just say how ridiculous our weather has been! If SPRING doesn't arrive soon...I'm going to lose it....lol My cute little flip flops are screaming to come out of the closet! Do you know I haven't even put away the winter boots....just in case ;)
Last night I started to set up an Etsy store!! I think I'll look back through some of my more recent cards and choose 10 favourites to list later today.
This card was created for the third Viva La Verve April Challenge. It was this fun layout and these colours....Baja Breeze, Summer Sun and More Mustard. Sounds funky eh? But really...it turned out to be an okay combo! What do you think?
Stamps: Petals and Stems; Cardstock: PTI white, Baja, Summer sun, More mustard and Good Morning Sunshine dp; Inks: Baja, Summer sun, Black; Accessories: Circle nesties, mat pack and paper piercer, Baja ribbon, dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
Tomorrow starts the All That Scraps Sneak Peeks!

Love the color combo Dawn. Thanks for your sweet note on my blog - I'm a little unnerved right now cause I'm not sure I've got what it takes but I'm sure going to try :-) I'll be watching YOU for inspiration too - I have stopped by your blog before - love your style.
Hugs n smiles.

Lovely card, Dawn! I've been thinking about an Etsy store too (DH would love that!), but I have a hard time parting with my cards! Silly I know!

Thanks for the nice comment! I've always admired your work and look forward to being on the team! I just saw some of your cards "in person" at our Spring Fest Stamping event in Buffalo (hosted by Tracy Harp)! Even more beautiful in person! :0)

Hi Dawn! THanks so much for stopping by and welcoming me to the DT. I can't wait to work with you. Truly an honor to be joining the team!

Hey Dawn,

I'm sorry that your weather is sucky! It's been sort of weird on our end too. It was close to 100 degrees last week and now it's in the 60s and overcast.

I was going to start an Etsy store too but I was thinking if only crafters are going to be looking at them . . .would they buy them if they already create their own stuff? LOL!

Your card is gorgeous!!The color combo is fantstic!! Love all the dots. . .I can never get my dots to go straight! You did a wonderful job!
