Close to the Broken Hearted VLV

Hi friends! It's the first Friday of a new month and time for a new Viva la Verve sketch. Our challenge is now a month long challenge, and we'd love for you to join us! I hope you'll find a little inspiration with this sketch.


Earlier this month, I had a brief interlude of quiet from the twins and I sketched out this layout. Then I immediately had to make a card. I chose this verse from Scripture Medley 5, thinking it would make a beautiful encouraging card for someone going through a rough time, or if need be a sympathy card.

The papers are from 7 Dots Studio and I just loved the dreamy look to them. I distressed them with antique linen and vintage photo distress inks, then layered a bit of lace trim down for some texture and interest. The Psalm 34:18 verse is embossed in early espresso and then I embossed the flower, colored with Copics and then fussy cut to pop up off the side for a little extra movement.


Here are the dimensions I used, if you like to have them...

Base - 5.5 x 4.25"
Layer 1 -  5.25 x 4"
Layer 2 - 4 x 3.25"
Layer 3 - 5.25 x 1"
Layer 4 - 1.75 x 3"


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! If you're looking to do a little shopping, we've got a fabulous little sale going on at Verve.
