Here are a few other coordinating Verve products that I used on my card today!


I was inspired to create my card using the new Seize the Sketch #13, designed by Sherry Eckbald!  Isn't it a wonderful and versatile sketch?!  I plan to use this one again and again!

Head on over to the Seize the Sketch Blog and see what the other designers have created today!



After layering up some pretty Crate Paper papers and a doily, I stitched a row of little Quartet Heart Die hearts, then propped up the larger distressed heart from More Than Love.  To finish off my card, I inked up the beautiful "be mine" sentiment form More Than Love, wrapped the front panel with the beautiful new Pink/Cream Pastel Polka Dot Ribbon and added a sprinkling of Pastel Sequins Mix sequins.
