Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop - Day 4


Welcome back for Day 4 of the Spotlight Hops!  Hopefully you've arrived here from Andrea's Blog. Today I am featuring the Wonderfully Made set.  I started by embossing cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder along with the Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser.  That allowed me to emboss the cardstock and leave a perfect circle in the center for my sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from Wonderfully Made and then stitched a circle around the border.  I stamped the flower from the set onto a scrap piece of cardstock, colored it with Copic markers, cut it out and mounted on the card with foam tape.  I adhered the embossed panel to a white card base and added a little organdy bow. 

We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
