Mini Card

What a wonderful surprise to learn that my name was drawn in the Verve-Mojo Monday #296 Contest!
(I loved that sketch!  This was my entry.)
How generous of Verve Stamps, that I got to select a stamp set of my choice.
I selected the Take Note set, and I've used it today for the Verve-June Diva Dare-Puddles of Color.
The challenge is to use "Coloring and/or Painting", with the option of using "kraft" cardstock.
I painted pink acrylic paint on kraft cardstock, stamped with black ink,
stamped the hearts with white & pink acrylic paints, &
did some "crazy" stitching with my sewing machine.
I love making "mini-cards" (this one is approximately 3" x 3"), AND I love using "kraft" cardstock.
I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp & Show...Challenge - Kraft.

Stamps:  (Verve)-Take Note
Paper:  Kraft & White
Ink:  Archival-Jet Black
Acrylic Paints:  Baby Pink, Titanium White
Die:  (Spellbinders)-Long Scalloped Rectangles
Other:  Sewing Machine Stitching, Seam Binding, Button, Lace Trim, Hemp Cord

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!
