Verve Spotlights - Day 6, Making a Statement

Welcome to Day 6 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop series! Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night! One lucky commenter along today's  hop will win today's featured sets and dies.  So be sure and leave a little comment love as you hop around the Divasphere!  Check the Verve Blog for prize details and deadlines.

Our spotlight for today is shining on a new set called Making a Statement, and its coordinating dies...Rounded Scallop Frame and Loopy Blooms.  My card features Making a Statement and the Rounded Scallop Frame as well as a couple of other sets and dies we previewed earlier this week.


I cut the Rounded Scallop Frame and stamped the coordinating scallop frame in Espresso ink and adhered it to the patterned paper circle. I stamped the sentiment in the negative of the frame and ran some ribbon through middle of the frame.


I couldn't resist added some of the Leafy Sprigs dies, because they're pretty much my new favorite die:) I also stamped a couple birds randomly around the card front and added some metal photo corners. 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Diva's have prepared for you! Your next stop should be Amy!
