Viva la Verve

I have a lot of catching up to do if I want to complete all four Viva la Verve sketch challenges this month. I started with the latest one (January Week 4) and chose this foyer as my inspiration.

I created the tiled look by stamping images from the Accent Notes and Thankful Accents sets with gray and green ink. The happy birthday sentiment and frame were stamped with black ink and clear embossed. I thought a double bow would look nice here, so I made one from white taffeta ribbon with the Bow-Easy (and it is really easy to do!).

Thanks for stopping by!
