One Verve Sketch Three Ways

There is this fab sketch over at Verve...yes, a contest is involved...the winner will be the guest designer for the month of June. Well, win or not this is a fun sketch and you know me...I'm a sucker for a great sketch! LOVE sketches! I love seeing all of the different interpretations and I love coming up with my own!

So while playing with this sketch I came up with three different cards that I really like. You can check the sketch out over at Julee Tilman's blog or at her Verve blog. Well, when I first saw the sketch I wanted to flip it and turn it into a mailbox. I really love when a sketch just 'looks' like something to me. Love it! Well here's how that one turned out....
The 'mailbox' even opens....

...how funny is it that there was only a one dollar bill in my wallet! I never have cash! :)

So then I had this great idea for turning a star into a flower. The trouble is once the 'flower' was created it looked really Christmas'y' so I had to turn it into a Christmas card. Here is that one...

...and finally...I had to use my heart stamp. I really love the heart from this set. It's spring and so I turned to pinks and greens. I had the perfect pink pearls for this one. Here's my final card...

So that's it. What a fantabulous sketch! This one I will definitely use again!

Thanks for stopping by! I am off to...well...clean my desk! You wouldn't believe how trashed it is! I look forward to posting you all soon!

Have a great night! ;)

Wow! I loved your ideas. I especially loved the star that you doubled and layerd to make a starburst or flower. Very cute and I have to try it.

Have a great weekend!
