Here's my card for this month's final Viva la Verve sketch.  I used another new to me Verve set for this easy to mail design.

Smile card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
I stamped the pair of flowers from the Happy Place set on a white panel, then used Copic markers to color in the image.  The colored image was layered on to a pale pink panel.  I layered narrow rose cardstock strips above and below the image to add a bit of contrasting color.  The panel was adhered to a green patterned paper panel, then set on a coordinating green card base.  I die cut a fishtail flag strip from pale pink cardstock and stamped the set's "smile" sentiment on it in green pigment ink, then added it to the cardfront.

Materials Used:
Happy Place stamp set (Verve Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Memento Luxe Pistachio ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Simply Chartreuse cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Apple Cheddar Soup-Sharp Cheddar Cheese designer paper (Jillibean Soup); Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax die (My Favorite Things)
