Super sweet card, Stacey. You're a huge asset to Verve and use their sweet stamps so creatively. I was so inspired by all the gorgeous cards on the Verve Blog and the lovely entries that I just had to play along. I love this color combination, and always enjoy pulling out my favorite Verve Stamps to use on my cards. Thanks for a fun blog hop.
