Verve challenge using Wplus9

I am finally getting myself in my craft room to start playing around.  I started by using a new set I finally bought from Wplus9 (Mendhi Medallions).  I have been wanting this set since it first came out and finally got to use it.

I started the day by organizing all my PTI colors (cardstock) and then making a "book" of all the colors so it is easy to flip through and decide a great color combo.  I am also going to copy my mom and sister and put the copic colors on the label so I know which ones to use.
So, I was reading Lorie's blog and decided to get a good start on cards again by using Julee, from Verve stamps, sketch.  It was fun and easy.
I wanted to go monochromatic with a neutral color.  I decided on the blues, ocean tides, hawaiian shores and aqua mist.  The base is Smokey shadow (love that color and wish I had bought the ink before they stopped selling it, now I have to wait a few more months).  I also used vintage cream for the sentiment.
I think I used just about every element in the Mendhi Medallion set because I love it so much.  Even the sentiment is in the set.  Again, if you have not had a chance to try out their stamps, run, do not walk over to their site and try just one.  They are priced VERY reasonably and so easy to use.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Thanks so much for the kind words! It makes my day to hear that someone is loving their stamps and feels confident in their purchase. ;o) Beautiful card, I love the subtle background stamping and the cluster of buttons! Just perfect
