Verve is celebrating their two year ANNI-VERVE-SARY. This week in the Verve forum at Splitcoaststampers you can join in the celebration with lots of giveaways, challenges, and a release party on Friday night! This is my take on Monday sketch challenge.

I stamped the Whimsical Tree onto cardstock, paper pieced the tree, cut out my circles with my nestibilities,  and sponged distressing ink around the edges. I used my sewing machine to add some zig zag and straight stitching. I added pearls, red rhinestones, and lace to add to the elegant feel I was going for!

Thanks for looking,

Stamps - Verve Whimsical Tree, Sentiment SU
