For the Viva la Verve! July week 1 sketch challenge:
I used a sentiment from Verve's Hope Blooms set. Papers are all BG Curio except for the bottom right square, which is Cosmo Cricket. The yellow panel is embossed and a little ink added (the paper in the Curio line already has distressing, but I wanted to bring out a bit more of the embossing). The red layer is cut with a Spellbinders Lacey Circles Nestability. Some shabby wrinkled ribbon and flat backed pearls finish it.
Thanks for looking.
