Verve Sneak Peeks, Day 2~Framed Wishes/Fabulous You!

So are you loving this month's sneak peeks so far? You ain't seen NOTHIN' yet! We still have 7 sets to peek, EEEEEEKS! Today's stamp sets really make me smile! Not only are there a TON of fabulous sentiments of varying fonts, but TWO fabulous frames, too! These frames will work with SO MANY Verve stamps, it makes my HEAD SPIN! LOL! I just know you're going to love these sets. Today I chose to work with Fabulous You!
I used the 2nd Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenge for my layout:

This sketch was MADE for these stamp sets, lol! 


My card base is Vintage Cream and then I sewed a layer of K&Co dp/Kraft cardstock on top. I ran the smaller kraft piece through my cuttlebug for some texture and the layered a piece of Aqua Mist ribbon (sewed onto a strip of Vintage Cream cut out with my Apron Lace punch). The frame and sentiment are stamped in Crumb Cake on Vintage Cream. The sentiment panel was cut out with a frame punch by EK Success, it fits PERFECTLY! I love when that happens, ha!

As you already know, the Diva's are pulling out ALL the stops on these sneak peeks so if you haven't seen them yet, you MUST! Head on over to the Verve Blog for a list of all participating Diva's!

Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow with more!!!!!!!
