Anni~Verve~sary Spotlight Hop Day 6 ~ Making a Statement



It's hard to believe this is the final day for Verve's Anniversary sneak peeks. I hope you've enjoyed hopping along with us, and seeing all the fun new images and dies! I also hope you've been commenting on all the blogs in the hop, because, if there ever were stamp sets to win, these baby's are it!! So be sure to stop by the Verve Blog for all the details.

Also, tonight's the Verve release party. It's a riot chatting with all the Verve fans as well as with Mark and Julee. They're just the sweetest!! So be sure to stop by the Verve Forum tonight at 6:00 PM Pacific.

For my card today, I stamped the lined paper image, from the Making a Statement set, with Red Brick VersaMagic, onto Kraft, and diecut it with the Rounded Scallop Frame. I then stamped the scalloped image with the Red Brick and die cut it with the Rounded Scallop Frame, and fit the ink distressed Kraft piece inside. I then added the birthday sentiment and the sweet little pieced bird.

The felt flowers were diecut with the Loopy Blooms die, and I used the Leafy Sprigs die to cut some leaves.

That's it. Next along the hop is Andrea.
