The last two Viva la Verve challenges came into play for my card today!


The newest Verve release was my all-time favorite (though, I think I say that every time)!  Coffee!  I LOVE Coffee and have many friends that do also...so the Coffee stamp set is a must-have...and it's coordinating Cuppa Joe Die Set and Coffee Word Die!  The Sweet Scallop Die displays the coffee cup and sentiment ever so nicely, and the Polka Dot Ribbon Collection and Signature Sequin Mix became the finishing touches!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
