So I Lied...

Okay, one more post before my father-in-law gets here. I was cleaning all the stamping stuff off of my dining room table so we will have a place to eat when he's here (where have WE been eating, you might ask? ha-ha!) I found a printout of the Verve Project Parade challenge for May, which I have been meaning to take part in! Since the deadline is tomorrow, I figure I'd better get busy. I broke out my beautiful new Verve stamps, Petals and Stems, which I have only used once, and inked those babies up! They are so pretty! I still have to play with them some more, but I figured I'd better limit myself to one card, since now I'm going to have to clean up the dining room table again! :-) Here it is:

I knew with all of those colors, I wanted just little bits of them so the card wouldn't be overwhelming to me. The last time I did a challenge with more than three colors, I really didn't like my card. I like how this one turned out!

Okay, this time, really--have a great weekend, and I'll "see" you next week after my father-in-law has left.
