Color Me Spring! Verve Challenge; Have I mentioned? I ♥ Verve stamps!?!

Loving Loving Loving the Verve stamps! 
And to top off my new love affair, darn it if they don't have a delightful site packed full of fun challenges and oodles of inspiration! No wonder I am in LOVE!
I combined two Verve challenges here ... (hope that's okay ... I - in no way - want to be a cheater, so if this isn't allowed, please let me know!!)
They have an awesome sketch challenge on the go; I adore the sketch and have made 22 more cards with this sketch in the last two days! and then there's also the "color me spring" challenge ... that I took very literally. :)

So I took this challenge quite literally and decided to actually "color my own spring paper" with my sparkly new Verve stamps. I used stazon, copics and then pounced around with a sponge smooshed on an ink pad. I'm so high tech! ;)

This card is about 5.5 x 7; I combined the sketch and spring color challenge ... you can find both challenges by going to the Vonderful Verve site :D

I made three cards in total ... oops, didn't cut my paper right in the first place ... so I was able to swing two cards, standard size of about 4 x 5 ish and then the one 5 x 7 ish.Yes, they are Crazy BUSY, but growing on me! The actually show a lot of depth and the colors really "pop". I made all the paper myself :) Except for the black ... but I just stamped and sponged all the pieces with my new Verve sets ... Colored my "own spring"

Hey :D Thanks for coming out and having a look; I am so inspired by ALL of you out there in the blogger world ... what did I ever do without YOU! Yes, You. :)
Thank YOU!
