Verve New Release Spotlight - Day 3

It's Day 3 of the New Release Spotlights at Verve and today we're featuring Love Deepens and the Proverbs 31:28 Plain Jane.  My card for today uses a sentiment from Love Deepens and images from the Bloom & Grow set that you saw the other day.  The Love Deepens set is a must have for making cards for mothers of all kinds. 

 I started by stamping the flowers and layering in different inks.  Then I stamped the leaves all around to form a sort of "patterned paper".  I stamped my favorite sentiment from the Love Deepens set in Onyx Black ink.   I added some bling to the centers of the flowers and then layered this piece onto black cardstock.  I scored three lines at the bottom of the card base and mounted the focal piece with foam dimensional adhesive to the card base. 

Be sure to see what the rest of the Divas created using today's featured sets!  Remember, tomorrow is the last day of sneak peeks AND the Release Party!!  Hope you'll join us!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
