A Verve-y Day

This card is for the Verve week 1 challenge on SCS. The Divas post a new sketch every Friday and if you complete all of the sketches and post to the Champions thread, you are in the running for winning the next Verve release. It is a random draw so, anyone can win!! Trust me, I won!! As well, Verve is having a Verve Fan Hop- you have until today at noon Mountain time to post a card to the Verve Stamps blog. There are a couple prizes going on there too!! Soo.... go get stampy on your Sat. morn!!

I used Websters pages for the three panels, the blushing bride panel beneath was stamped with Verve's Bountiful backgrounds in versamark and heat embossed. Sentiment was stamped on a labels 17 nestie in black, lightly sponged blushing bride around the edges and layered on another labels 17. Added some prima flowers, crinkled ribbon, and a Jenni Bowlin stickpin. Gorgeous lace is from Websters Pages.
















TFL!!   It's a beautiful day, the sun is shining, have a cup of coffee in my hand and I'm getting ready to go check out all the gorgeousness on the Verve Fan blog hop!!
