Verve Release Day 3 ~ Merry Wishes

Boy, this week is going fast. It's already Day 3 of the Verve sneak peeks! WOW! Have you been enjoying the peeks? I tell ya, the divas have been cranking out pure gorgeousness!! Today I'm featuring the berry branches from the Merry Wishes set. I think they are just the sweetest!! This set, along with the other set being peeked today, will be given to one random commenter also. Just make sure you leave your comments before 7:00 pm Eastern time Friday evening. The winners will be announced at the Release Party that night. So, be sure to check out what each of the divas has to share with you today. I'll have the links at the end of this post. Now, for my card.
I stamped the berries with Onyx Black Versafine onto Natural cs, and since I'm addicted to the Viva Decor Gel, (sad, I know...once I get on a kick, it's hard for me to get off....lol) I used the red this time with glitter. Here's a close up. Aren't they fun?


I also added the sentiment "Holly Jolly" from the Holiday Phrases set. I though it was a perfect fit. The dp is all from Christmas Delight by Little Yellow Bicycle. The border underneath the image is a Tim Holtz die, and the other two are EK Success and Fiskars respectively.

It's time to check out what the other divas have to share. Here's a list of who's participating today:
Charmaine
Michelle
Lynda
Jackie
Laurie
Mercy
Amy
Teresa
Sankari
Tosh <~~~~ you are here :o)
Susan
Amber
Andrea - guest designer
