I just love these colors used for the latest Verve challenge. Perfect as I anticipate the return of warmer weather.

I started with four squares, one in each of the colors. I taped them all together on the backs, and stamped with flowers in Versamark. (Hard to see in pic.) Next I stamped the top panel on shimmery white and colored with the appropriate markers, including a Copic for the blue. Pierce a row beneath that panel. Top it off with a sentiment on Cuttlebug's flower die and a Martha butterfly punch, decorated with dots from the stamp set. I also highlighted a few things with Star Dust Stickles.

Now it's your turn. Check out the contest details here, then get your Verve on!
