Verve Challenge . . . Sort Of



This card was made for a recent Verve challenge. At least it was intended that way. There were five to choose from (I thought) so I chose the color challenge (any shade of aqua, orange, and green). Only after making it and going to upload it did I realize that you had to make all five cards to participate! Oops! So I have yet to enter my first challenge. But I did have fun making this card, and it will definitely get used, since my book group likes to send "sunshine" to each other when someone needs cheering up.

Supplies
Stamps: Verve Plain Jane
Paper: PTI--Rustic White & Orange Zest; stash
Ribbon: PTI--Orange Zest
Flower: Heidi Grace
Brad: Doodlebug Design
Ink: Ranger--Vintage Photo
Embossing Powder: American Crafts--Zing Orange
