Encouraging Words ~ Day 9

Hello Verve Fans!!! I hope you have been enjoying all the awesome creations by the Diva's so far!!! I sure have! Today is day 9 of our "Encouraging Words" project parade. It is no secret that Julee is the QUEEN of beautiful sentiments so since I had the beautiful Swan Song set out on my desk I thought it would be perfect for this theme! I went a different route than I have before for past project parades and made something very SIMPLE!!! LOL!!!

I chose the colors Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand and Whisper White for a soft, simple feel. The top of the Sahara Sand panel was embossed using my textile (I think) embossing folder and punched the bottom with my Martha Stewart Doily punch. Of course, I had to add some pink Heidi Swapp rhinestones. The swan was stamped on Whisper White CS and then cut out using my circle Nesties. I then stamped the entire sentiment on a piece of Pink Pirouette CS and cut it out using my rectangle Nesties. I stamped just a portion of the sentiment on the top of the circle and then lined it up with my rectangle sentiment and adhered them together. I did stamp the swan a second time, cut it out, colored it using my Copics and then added white flock with a little glitter over the entire swan. The final step was to add my Heidi Swapp pink bling circle and white May Arts ribbon.

Here is a closer look at the BEAUTIFUL swan ~

On the inside, I added another beautiful sentiment from Verve's Thankful Blossoms set. The sentiment I chose from the set says ~ "Your thoughtfulness touched my heart".
