Best Birthday Wishes for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve! September Week 3 sketch challenge
I used the "birthday wishes" sentiment from Verve's Wordy Birds and "wishing you all the best" from their Kind Words set.  
Papers are MME Lime Twist, and cardstock by PTI.  Instead of the tag shape in the sketch, I was chomping at the bit to play with My Favorite Things' new Prima Donna Flower Die-namics.  I also used a Spellbinders Lacey Circle Die (and Small Circle Die), Fiskars border die, and Lil' Inker Designs banner die.
Stitching along the edges and a rimmed rhinestone brad for the flower center finish it off.
Thanks for looking.

Thank You Enough for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve! September week 2 sketch challenge
I used a sentiment from MFT's Polka Dot Greeting stamp and Die-namics set on a Spellbinders' circle and Lacey circle Die, and surrounded by 2mm flat backed pearls.
I colored some seam binding using a YG17 Copic Marker and wrapped around the front, as well as some black baker's twine.  I punched two tiny tags with a Marvy trio punch, inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink, and stamped "thanks" from a Stampin' Up set on one.  The flower is a Recollections rose.

Wedding Sentiments card for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve! September week 1 sketch challenge:
I used three sentiments from Verve's Love Story set, cut with the Embossed Oval Die and on top of the Vintage Oval Frame stamp, cut with the Vintage Oval Die.  Papers are old Crate Paper.  Some seam binding, flatbacked pearls, and rolled roses made with MFT Die-namics.  I brushed Shimmerz over the roses to give them a slight shine that matches the seam binding and pearls better.

Thanks So Much for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve! August week 5 sketch challenge
I used a sentiment in Verve's Wordy Bird set.  Circle shapes are Spellbinders, and I cut the tag shape with my Cricut.  Papers are MME Stella and Rose.  Some stitching, seam binding, and flat backed pearls.  Pretty simple design for me this time...running short on time.
Thanks for looking!
