Anni-VERVE-sary blog hop


Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Jess' blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.

I created a very simple card for my blog using the VERVE Petals and Stems set. I also did this for the VERVE Ready Set stamp challenge - Petals and Stems.



I loved these flowers so much, that I just kept the focus on them. I stamped the butterfly on the main panel, then twice again in black and pink, cut it out and popped it up with glue dots to give it a 3D feeling. I loved this particular stamp set from VERVE and I think it offers a lot of possibilities.

Here is a close up of the butterfly and inside view of the card,





Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Jackie's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

Supplies:
Stamp - VERVE Petals and Stems
Paper - PTI Bitty Dot Basics Patterned Paper, PTI White, New Leaf and Kraft CS
Ink - PTI Berry Sorbet, Memento Black, Vivid Red, PTI Inking Cube
