Verve Sneak Peek ~ Love Story


Oh my goodness!! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself!! It's Verve's 3rd anniversary and Julee didn't hold back one iota!! She's pulled out all the stops with one amazing set of stamps after the other. Today a few of us lucky divas have the honor of Peeking Love Story for you. It's filled with 20 gorgeous images and sentiments in stunning Verve style.



I chose to make a gate card. A dear friend of mine's daughter got married this weekend, and I thought the gate with the two doves represented two separate lives joining. Thus the interlocking gate too. That was made with the Snowflake Borderabilities diecut by Spellbinders.

Here's what the inside looks like:



The frame is colored with a Spica Pen, and the dove was stamped with Red Brick Versamagic.

Now, there are more peeks to check out, so head on over to my uber talented teammates' blogs.

Mercy, Jen T., Susan, Sony, Laurie, Julee, Teresa , Amber, Maureen and Lynda
