Verve New Release Spotlight Hop - Day 1

Pin It

It's time for some NEW Verve!  Today we're starting the Spotlight Hops, so I hope you'll join us to see what's coming this Friday!

My card today features the new Joyful Blooms set along with the Joyful Blooms Die Set.  My card uses patterned paper from the This & That Graceful Collection from Echo Park.  I die cut two flowers out of two different patterned papers and then stamped them with the coordinating stamps.  I layered the flowers using foam tape and then added a pearl brad to the center. 

The sentiment is stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  As a finishing touch, I stitching around the card.  For more peeks, please visit the rest of the Verve Divas!  Leave comments along the way to WIN some new Verve!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back tomorrow!
