Verve Spotlights - Day 2 is EGG-STRA SPECIAL!

**Click on banner to go to party thread (that won't be hoppin' until Friday!)**

Hello bloggers! Back for more, are ya? I can't say I blame you because the Diva's have MORE prepared for you with another new stamp set called Egg-stra Special and some new A Cut Above dies!
I just got my dies in the mail today, so I didn't have time to use them yet! But I know the other Diva's have them and can't wait to show you what they do!


For my card, I started by stamping a whole bunch of eggs and then coloring them with Copics! I cut them all out and popped them up on dimensionals. This is a textur-iffic card, believe me, lol! If I mail it, it's going to have to go in a box, lol! I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock and then cut the corners to make a tag, which I then tied onto the ribbon with some green twine!


I also tied a Bling Button from Bazzill onto the ribbon bow, isn't that thang gorgeous??? It's so sparkly! 

Oh, and did I mention there's a prize??? We love to celebrate here at Verve, so we've hidden a prize along the hop today! One lucky commenter on one of the Diva Hop Spots below will receive today's featured stamps and dies...Egg-stra Special, Charming Banner Die Set and Charming Oval Die Set! Deadline for commenting is 6PM Mountain on Friday, March 25. Winners will be announced during our ReLeAsE pArTy that night! 

Here's the hop order, get to hoppin'!
