Without Words
I didn’t feel like adding a sentiment to this card; I expect I will find words for the inside when I’m ready to send it to somebody.

The layout I used was this month’s Viva la Verve sketch #3, and I applied the faux tile technique to the image panel. I stamped the tree and birds with black ink on a 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of white card stock and completely covered the panel with green and pink/purple inks. Next I cut the panel into 5/8″ squares, adhered these to Sahara Sand card stock, and covered each “tile” with Crystal Effects. I didn’t assemble the card until the following day, to make sure everything was dry before I continued.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera, you know I love this card! It’s beautiful. My favorite combination with the color purple is lime green. I don’t think any words are required on the outside.
