A couple of days ago I came home to an awesome surprise box on my porch. I had no idea what it was but thought it might be a birthday present. I opened the box to find an adorable Vera Bradley bag. But here’s the REALY WEIRD and super neat part…
Just last week I was in a little nearby boutique looking for a Valentine gift for a friend and they had a beautiful display of Vera Bradley items. I looked for a long time, finally deciding that my favorite fabric was Mod Floral Pink. Then I looked at (ok actually I touched) all the different styles of bags until I chose the Little Betsy. After all that I decided I wasn’t ready to commit and I left without my chosen bag. How weird is this? It was exactly that bag in the surprise box! I was giddy with excitement!
When I looked at this week’s sketch I thought it would be fun to make a card inspired by my new Vera Bradley bag. What do you think?
The elements of the card are quite simple since the sketch is fairly complicated. Card base is Chocolate Chip with layers of Tempting Turquoise and Tangerine Tango. The dp is Junkitz Salsa. The stamped flower is from SU Petal Pizzazz. I stamped it in Pink Passion ink, adding some So Saffron with a marker and some doodles with a red marker and cut it out. Embellishments are SU rub-ons, a clear button and a variety of rhinestones from Zva Creative and Kaiser Craft.
Let’s check out what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up! (Big HUGS to Ana and Sherrie who are both under the weather!)
This week’s Featured Sampler is the oh-so-talented and oh-so-sweet Jodi Collins at Stamping A Latte. And of course check out Taylor’s blog for her sample and all the deets on how you can play along with us! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend!
