Verve's Get Your Diva On challenge

Here again, with another card for a Verve challenge, called "Get Your Diva On"...they say that you don't have to use Verve stamps to participate...but I doubt I'll win anything with other stamps! Still, I really wanted to pull out the Cupcake Collection stamp set from Papertrey, because I haven't had the chance to use it yet.

Here is the inspiration photo for the project:

I love all things Valentine's and my fave colors are pink, red & brown, so this one was lots of fun. Pretty simple, but I got to use my new sei chocolat papers that just came in the mail yesterday! yipee! This assortment has some gorgeous shimmer papers (I included a couple on my card) as well as beautiful glitter, embossed, flocked, you name it! A wonderful collection. I couldn't pass it up.

And here's my card:
This is a detail that hopefully shows the shimmer paper on the bottom better:

  1. Those papers ARE cute... I'm still restricting myself to what I have (except for those 2 packs I just got from CTMH) :)
