Guest Designer: Ida Krause

We had two talented guest designers working with us this month to create projects for the Verve gallery.

Our first guest designer is Ida Krause. I first saw Ida's work through her submissions to various sketch challenges and contests on my blog. I loved her creations and have been a lurker on her blog, Faith Artistry, for a while, checking out her awesome creations for the Blogger's Challenge Group each week. She did a fabulous job working with Serenity and chose to submit a card for each season. I just love how many different looks she was able to create with this set! Check out her awesome creations below. To see a larger image of each card, click the photo.
