Oh boy...Houston...we have a problem...

Well...maybe not a problem...but for a girl on a SERIOUS stamp budget...I just fell IN LOVE with Verve...oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!! LOL!! I am placing an order and that's that!
Here is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC194, Going Really Vanilla. I used Basic Grey instead of Going Grey as this is the only Grey I have. This is also for Julee's Mojo Monday #62 Sketch.
My bestest bud Jessie had sent me some stamped images from Fluttering By by Verve awhile ago and I decided to pull them out for today's Color Challenge. ALL the panels except for the Basic Grey card base have been coated with Shimmerz in Candlelight. This stuff is AWESOME!!! I ordered the Shimmerz for a present for someone and threw one in for myself too (bad for the budget Jodi!!!). I got the Shimmerz Jacksonbelle Embellishments, and all I can say is about FAST shipping. I ordered them on a Saturday and got them on Tuesday!
The butterflies were watercolored with Really Rust SU! ink and an Aquapainter, and the vanilla brads are by American Crafts. The background and most of the other layers were run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.
Thanks so much for looking!!!
