Thanks So Very Much

Good morning!  I hope you are having a fabulous week.  I was inspired by this week's ColourQ Challenge and had some extra time to stamp the other day.  I just ordered some stamps from Verve and couldn't wait to get them all inky.  These little Loopy Blooms look like little clovers to me, so I thought they would look pretty cute for this St. Patrick's Day themed color challenge.  I cut out the Rounded Scallop Frame in black and white card stock and then used the alphabet border in Take Note to mimic the newsprint part of the color challenge.  I didn't have any newsprint, and didn't want to cut up a book, so this was a fun solution.  The sentiment in the lower right corner is from Making a Statement.  For a little extra detail, I added a few black pearls to the clovers.

Here are the Verve products I used on my card today:
