Verve Birthday Wishes


Oh my, I think I'm in LOVE!  I recently won a drawing over at Verve and got some new stamps and dies...they are luscious!  How fabulous is that flower/leaves image and the darling heart border!  

What better to show my "SMITTEN-ness" than to play along with the Diva Dare-March combining Maureen and Laurie's styles, the Viva La Verve sketch week 1...


 the Pile It On Challenge #9: Birthday and Cupcake Inspiration #200 (CIC17) worked well for a sweet birthday card, and The Play Date Cafe #172 & City Crafter #149: Shades of Pink colors and Spring Theme #78 at Ribbon Carousel were just right for a lovely floral design!


I stamped the flower image twice, once with green ink on some green patterned paper, and again with pink ink on pink patterned paper...die-cut the flowers with the coordinating dies and stacked 'em all up with some foam pieces.  GORGEOUS!  


Thanks for stopping by the stage!  

Stamps:  Surely Goodness (Verve)
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Black Stazon (SU)
Paper:  Naturals White CS (SU), Everyday PP (American Crafts)
