The new Viva la Verve sketch for July 2015 Week 2 was perfect show off some Sensational Stripes today!

I used one of my all-time favorite Verve Stamps sets, Strong Anchor, with its coordinating Nautical Die Set over double cut Flourished Tag Die Set tag!  I love how my tag has a bit of a mixed media look to it with the patterned paper, stamped sentiment and image elements off the edge.  



Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
