Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Every Little Thing

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Boho Bright!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Verve Stamps A randomly selected participant in the Boho Bright challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate to use at  Verve Stamps, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I love Verve Stamps.  I have for years.  They have a fabulous mix of elegant and funky, Christian and everyday, floral and even robots(!).  Even with my vast collection, I do have to admit that I stared at the inspiration photo for a long time trying to figure out what to do.  I finally decided I was going with the bright colors - they are way out of my comfort zone, but I had a ball working with them - and I think my card will serve its goal of brightening someone's day!

Every Little Thing

I am totally in love with the script of this sentiment!  It's from Let It Be. Each sentiment in it is scripted slightly differently but all are fun and unique.  The flower is one of my favorites for a bold and simple look - it's from Lean on Me and it also has some fun sentiments (and a coordinating die!).  I just got the butterfly after wanting it for ages.  The die is great on its own, but there are also some nice patterns for it in the So Fluttery set.

Although it's a little hard to see with all of the busy-ness of the card - the sentiment is on the Tagged Rectangle die.  The greenery is the Sprightly Sprigs die which I always have handy because it works with fun flowers, bold flower, and even elegant flowers.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
