Verve Visual Beautiful Things + Cupcake Inspirations

I had a chance to 'play' this weekend and it was such fun! I was inspired by a photo of a card from a recent Simon Says Stamp (SSS) card kit; I decided to use the inspiration for this card, completely changing the colors. The smaller flowers are from the SSS Birthday Flower set and do not have outlines, but since the gorgeous flower from Verve does - I just drew my own outlines on the flowers and leaves! :D The leaves are from Hero Arts You're So Lovely set.

The gorgeous purple patterned paper was also in a recent SSS card kit, but you can find it sold separately here. I added a tiny black border and layered up all my flowers and leaves using Press N Seal to hold them as I applied glue, flipped them back over and applied.

I cut the 'thanks' from black card stock, added some versamark to the bottom and dipped it in chunky gold embossing powder and heat set.

Thanks for popping in; hope you are having a great week!
