TODAY'S Featured Set:


Welcome back for another day of New Release Spotlights at Verve!  As you know, Verve is very well known for their sentiments.  Today's featured set is a wonderful sentiment set called Words Cannot Express

For my card, I used an old favorite color combo along with an older Verve set, Bountiful Backgrounds.  I also used the Fleur de Lis punch from EK Success to coordinate with the background stamp.  I pleated the ribbon, added some stitching and bling to complete this card perfect for that friend who was there during a rough spot.  Be sure to hop around to see what the rest of the Divas haved created using today's featured set! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back here tomorrow!
