Verve Sneak Peeks, Day 4~Dream BIG!


Here we are at day FOUR already! Today's set, Dream Big, is simply AMAZING! I am so excited to see what the rest of the Diva's did with this set, it's one of my FAVORITES from this release! More fun fonts, sentiments, and gorgeous elements. I just know you're going to love this one:)


I went a little clean and simple with this one. For me, anyways, lol!
I stamped the sentiments in Momento Espresso, SU! Riding Hood Red and So Saffron on Vintage Cream cardstock. I decided to stamp the floral image on the card base as my scallops, they're FABULOUS! Scalloped Scallops, nothing better than that! The dp on the bottom is from Material Girl by Cosmo!
 I finished this simple card with some Cuttlebug embossing and some Dark Chocolate ribbon from PTI! 

Want more? Head on over to the Verve Blog for today's list of sneak peek blogs! There are PRIZES in it if you leave everyone some love so get to hoppin'!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Be back tomorrow with more!
