Viva La Verve January Week #1

Top o' the morning to you!  I was feeling up for a challenge, and the Viva La Verve sketch really appealed to me.  Went with some cool blues and greens for a bridal shower card:


The sentiment is from Friendly Phrases, a sweet little Verve set. I like the mix of point sizes within the same clean, crisp font.


Here's the sketch before I go:


A little shout-out to my 12 year old, who received the Thumbs Up! award from her teachers yesterday.  The certificate says she was given the award for "having an excellent attitude and work ethic!  You're having an excellent impact on our team!"  Proud momma moment, right here.  :)

Thanks so much for popping over here today!
