ATC - Verve Style!

As I was thinking about how to hide the fact that I'm a total ATC newbie (this is only my second one I've ever made), I saw that Charmaine was new at this as well! After seeing her beautiful card, I was definitely encouraged and inspired...maybe I could do this after all!


There really isn't a lot of room to work with...so I decided to choose a sentiment to be the focal piece (after all...Verve has the BEST sentiments!!). I embossed the "Untie the Ribbons" quote (from the Asian Flair set) in copper onto Shimmery White c.s. This patterned paper by S.E.I....that I had in my stash and was totally hoarding...seemed like a perfect match! A few rhinestones, a fun corner treatment (I embossed one of the circle images from the Asian Flair set in copper and put it on top of a punched out photo corner), and of course....some ribbon were the perfect embellishments! :-)


Whether you are an ATC pro, or a newbie like me...I sure hope you get a chance play along! (Psssst! There are PRIZES - you can read all about them HERE!!!)
