Verve Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the first ever Anni-VERVE-sary Bog Hop. Verve turns two today and we're celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you've just happened along, be sure to hop over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there's a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky customer on that blog will win Verve's entire August release! But of course, it wouldn't be a mystery if you know which blog, would it? So if you're feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy.


For my card for the blog hop I used my Because of You set, I LOVE this set, all the flowers are so beautiful!! I wanted to do a bit of a different color combo so I inked the grass /stems portion with Papertrey's New Leaf and the flowers with Hibiscus burst on Stampin Up! Kraft cardstock. I cut the image out using my Labels Two Nestabilites. For the Hibiscus Burst panel I scored using my Scor-Bug, love that little tool, it adds so much!!! I used my Bow Easy to make my bow, so fast and easy to make the perfect bow!!
Thanks for stopping by now hop on over to Shannan's blog for a little more Verve-y goodness.
Supplies:
Stamps: Verve Because of You
Paper: Stampin Up! Kraft, Papertrey, Dark Chocolate & Hibiscus Burst
Ink: Papertrey New Leaf and Hibiscus Burst
Toosl/Accessories: Scor-Bug, Labels Two Nestabilites, New Leaf Grossgrain, Bow Easy
