Happy Anniversary Verve!

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!

For my card, I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try and one of the new sets coming in the August Verve release! This set is called Enjoy. . .and I know you will do just that! :) I used the Peony Nestabilities to frame the focal image and to create the little flower embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Janelle’s blog for a little more Verve-y goodness.
