Verve New Release Spotlight - Day 3


Today is the final day of New Release Spotlights at Verve and tonight is the RELEASE PARTY!!  We hope to see you there!  Today we're featuring the Chicks Rule set along with the coordinating Flutterby Die!  My card for today uses sweet Sankari's Viva la Verve Sketch.  Her challenge started today, so hop on over to play along!  :) 

I stamped the chick from Chicks Rule onto white cardstock and used a scalloped piece of paper and a sponge to create the clouds behind the chick.  The papers are from the Baby Girl Nursery Stack from Die Cut With a View.  I stamped the sentiment in white craft ink onto black cardstock. . .one of my favorite things to do.  The ribbon is a paper ribbon that came on a package.  I loved it so I saved it. 

We hope you've enjoyed the New Release Spotlights these last few days!  We hope you'll make it to the Release Party tonight!  It starts at 9pm Eastern!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday!
