Verve goodness

First of all....I won four stamp sets from VERVE at the release party last Friday night! You should have been there! Lots of fun and plenty of prizes...I have met some great ppl there, too.
I have for you today Verve's "Viva la Verve!" challenges for week one and three.
Here's week two, if you missed it VLV2.

here are the sketches

And here are my cards
The tag pulls out on this one and I tied a small piece of pink gingham ribbon to the cotton twine.
the background was stamped with Verve goodness and you can see the RX for this card at the end of this post.
this started as a wedding invitation. the embossed background was the front of the wedding invitation. I cut the front panel away from the back of the card and cut the white ribbon off, too!
This card measures 5 3/8 " square.
I even used the Bride's invitation stamp on the pale pink square behind the embossed vellum.
Can you see some of the words on the very top above left of the spellbinders tag and just above the middle of the bow?
got my Just Rite stamper out to create the monogram of the happy couple, the date, and place of the ceremony. they are getting married tomorrow at Sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay.
the sun will rise over the bay and what a WOW factor..can't wait to see it and 
share the joy of Jen and Jason.
thanks for coming by!
