It's Viva la Verve July Week 2 time over at Splitcoaststampers. I was inspired to create this card using Amber's fantastic sketch...

and this amazing inspiration room. I love the contrasting black & white with that pop of yellow!

The black and white color scheme lended itself nicely for me to use some of that awesome Newsprint DSP. I paired it up with this sunny yellow flower...gorgeous!

Today is my 39th birthday! I am going to see Eclipse with two of my gal pals and then to dinner at Olive Garden. It was so sweet, my son and I were up late last night and at midnight, he said, "Happy Birthday, Mom!" I will spend this birthday feeling very blessed!

Thanks for stopping by! A brand new Curtain Call Color Challenge will be up and running tonight at midnight...see you then:)

Stamps: Love's Flower (Verve)
Paper: Daffodil Delight & Basic Black textured, Very Vanilla CS, Newsprint DSP
Ink: Old Olive, Black Tuxedo (Momento), Copics
Other: Scallop Punch (EK Success), button, twine & pearls (non-SU), Black Striped Grosgrain

Wonderful! I chose the same room and hope to be able to get a card done this week - will see because it is a VBS week and that means I'm usually pretty exhausted. Looking forward to seeing your card tomorrow.

Marisa said...

Ooops, almost forgot!!!
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, dear Stacey,
Happy Birthday to you!!!

That's as close to singing it to you as you'll get. Bet it sounded much nicer in your hear with your voice as you read/sang it LOL! Have a fabulous year ringing out the 30s. The 40s are fabulous - I've already broken them in for you LOL!

Let me know how you liked Eclipse! It's my favorite to date - think I liked this book the best especially the scene in the tent. Jacob's abs were very easy on the eyes and hard on the blood pressure LOL! (((hugs)))
