Verve Sneak Peeks, Day 3~Birthday Bash and Carpe Cupcake!


Welcome to Day 3 of the Verve Stamps Anni-VERVE-sary release week sneak peeks! WHEW! That was a mouth full, lol! Can you STAND all these cute new stamp sets? I almost swooned when I opened my package of all these beautiful stamp sets, Julee outdoes herself EVERY time! I'm loving these two sets we're peeking today, what's more fun that cake, balloons, cupcakes and super fun sentiments? NOTHING, lol!

For my card today, I used one of the Anni-VERVE-sary release week sketches! 
If you make a card with each of the sketches, you could win BIG! More details on that in THIS THREAD!

Here's my card:
The cake, balloons, and sentiment are from Birthday Bash and the sprinkles on the cake are from Carpe Cupcake!
The card base is white. I sewed a Riding Hood Red layer (embossed with my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder). The Pink Pirouette piece was stamped with the cupcake background builder, I stamped it in light pink so you can BARELY see it, but that's the effect I was going for:) Don't you love the font in the sentiment? Seriously, love this set!

Want MORE???? Check out the rest of the Diva's blogs for more sneak peek eye candy! You can find the participating Diva's by going to the Verve Blog!

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