Verve After Party

This year, we started having a Verve After Party at the Verve Blog, the Monday after each release, where we share the favorite projects of each Verve diva. This card is my favorite. I used sentiments from the set Hope Blooms.

I have the most AWESOME daughter. She's thoughtful, kind, helpful and beautiful, with a touch of orneriness that she got from her father...*grin* So when I saw the sentiment "You're an amazing..." I knew I would add "daughter" to the end of it!!

See the flower? I made that with the new Floral Circles A Cut Above dies. There are three sizes, and they work beautifully together. All I did was cut out 3 of each size, spritz them with water, crinkle them up and shape them, and then let dry. After they're all dry, I hot glue each layer, and add some stickles to the edges. E-A-S-Y!!!

I also added that fun strip of Prima Rhinestones and lace to the bottom. They lined up beautifully with the EK Success Punch I used!!

That's it for my card today. Be sure to check out the other diva favorite over at the Verve Blog.
Happy Stamping!!

Tosh, I smiled so big to see this, knowing Nichole is every bit as wonderful as you say! What a sweet and beautiful way to give her something back, even tho she is a tad ornery! Lol! (Love that about her!)
