Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop

Happy Anni-Verve-sary! It's Verve's three year anniversary and I'm super excited to be participating in my first ever Verve Blog Hop. If you didn't start at the original Vervegirl Julee's blog, or come from Diva's Michelle W.'s blog, take a moment to start at the very beginning. You wont want to miss the fan-tastic creations.

My MiL needed another wedding card so I decided to break out all my faves. I decided to try experimenting with more white space (than I normally do). I embossed a white panel with my current fave embossing panel, polka dots. Then I punched three squares in my go-to PTI colors and stamped them with the flower from Meditations in Versamark. I stamped my all-time favorite Verve set ever- Wishing You. And I topped it all off with a pretty yellow ribbon and some jewels.


Enjoy the rest of the hop. Your next stop is Wanda, who I'm sure whipped up some spectacular eye candy for you all. If you get lost along the way you can always refer back to the Master Hopper List.

The Dets:
Stamps: Verve Meditations, Wishing You
Paper: PTI true black, raspberry fizz, simply chartruese, hawaiian shores, white cardstock
Ink: Versafine black, Versamark
Accessories: square punch, spellbinder circles, cuttlebug polka dots, ribbon, mb jewels, stickles stardust
