The-e-e-e First Verve-OEL...a little Christmas in August for the Verve Card Carnival

Hello,
Here tonight with a card for the Verve Card Carnival in hopes that I will win their GRAND PRIZE of the full release of all their new stamps!  If you haven't been following their blog hops and all the excitement of their anniversary please check out their BLOG.  There is some incredible inspiration along the way and something will be sure to inspire you to make a card.

I went through my Verve stamps and decided to ink up a Christmas set called Glad Tidings. Here is my card:

I really wanted to get a card entered for the chance to win but I am not sure that I am satisfied with the layout of this card that I made.  I liked the background stamping I did with the snowflakes in the set.  I like the wreath also as it is one of my favorite images but I don't like the patterned paper that I stamped it on and I forgot to emboss the white focal piece that sits on top of the doily and couldn't remove it after I adhered it without ruining the card!  I also don't like the way I placed the flourish...Oh well...not every card is going to be a favorite and I did have fun making it! 
 

I also really like the way the velvet ribbon turned out! Love red velvet at Christmas especially layered like this!

 
Thanks for taking a peak at my card for the Verve Card Carnival!  Hope you get to join in for a chance to win all of the wonderful upcoming release!  They are also having a HUGE sale right now on all of their existing stamps...and I am so tempted to spend a little money....we shall see....I am trying to be GOOD and play with what I already HAVE as it is the playing that makes me happy and feeds my inner bliss!

Happy Crafting my friends!
