July Verve Diva Inspirations Hop!

Hi there! This is my 2nd post today! If you're looking for my Deconstructed Sketch post, please scroll down a bit! Thanks so much:)
*****************************
So, today, I have the pleasure of joining the Inspiration Diva's on their monthly hop! We've all picked out some oldie-but-goodie Verve stamp sets and hope to inspire you to pull out your older, unloved stamps as well! New stamps are great, but sometimes those old ones just never lose their sparkle:)

For today's card, I decided to pull out Abundant Blessings! I have always loved this set and don't play with it often enough!
Abundant Blessings

Here's my card!

I went pretty simple as far as the design goes, and I love how it turned out! I used my square nestabilities to create the brown and yellow frames. I also did a bit of paper piercing around the corners and some sewing to add interest to the frames. All in all, this card turned out just how I was hoping! 

Are you ready to see more? You can start the Hop at the Verve blog and continue through and comment on each fabulous blog and leave a little comment love and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!  If you got here from the Susan's Blog you are in the right place.  Be sure to check out the awesome line up of diva inspiration we have for you this month and also check out the sale happening in the store all month long!

I've added your card creation to my pinterest inspiration page as it is so unique! LOVE the hole punches, the distressing, and the design is so simple yet so striking. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

The design may have been simple, but I think it is deceptively simple. You put a lot of detail into this card and it is amazing. Love the pop of yellow.
