Verve Spotlight Hop Day 1 ~ Swirling Hearts

It's hard to believe 2011 is here already. How exciting!!
Well, I'm excited to share a card I made for Verve's first release of the new year too.

The diva's will be sneak peeking for the next 3 days, some of the most darling and charming images. Here's the first of three cards I get to peek this week.


Today, I'm sharing a card that I made with the charming and elegant image that fits the Vintage Oval die Verve released last month. Isn't it beautiful? It has swirls and swirls of hearts and is appropriately named Swirling Hearts. I stamped the frame and sentiment with Smokey Gray Versafine, and added some sparkle to the hearts with my Quickie Glue Pen and some Ultra fine Glitter.

For the layout, I used Amber's VLV Sketch for January Week one. Check it out HERE. I just adore the 4 panels. I used "Once Upon a Springtime" dp by Graphic 45.

Lastly, I added a couple of buttons with silver cord and some silver pearls and lace ribbon. I also sewed around the panels and added an EK Success punched border along the bottom.

This Friday, January 7, Verve is releasing some fabulous new sets and dies! To countdown to the release, we’re putting on a series of mini blog hops Tuesday through Thursday of this week to preview the new sets!
