Verve Sneak Peeks, Day 1~Love Story

**Please scroll down to see my Oh, Alice! card! Thanks so much:)**

Welcome to Day 1 of the Anni-VERVE-sary August Release!
This will truly be one of the BEST releases in Verve history, GUARANTEED!

Today, we're showcasing Love Story which is a GORGEOUS set--perfect for weddings, anniversary's, or "Just Because I Love You" cards! 

I used one of the Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenge sketches for this card! See THIS thread for more sketch challenges and chances to WIN!
How fun is that sketch? I loooove long and skinny cards!
Okay, here's my sneaky peeky!



I just LOVE these colors together, Black, Aqua Mist, and White! So classy and elegant, a perfect Anniversary card! I'm giving this to my sweetie on September 1st, our 7 year anniversary!! It's got a little bit of bling and what man likes swirly punches, but you now what? My honey is used to my girly man cards, lol!
The swirly punch is from EK Success! 



This image is actually three separate stamps. The birds, the heart, and the sentiment are all separate, but don't they look stunning together? That's what I love about this set, TONS of mixing and matching possibilities!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the Diva's have prepared for today! Check out the Verve Blog for a list of Diva's with sneak peeks and MAKE SURE you check them out!

I'll see you back here tomorrow for more sneak peeks!!
