Beautiful You

Verve

Diva Andrea's "Diva Dust" kept falling so I hoarded it and made another card attempting her style.  K & Co paper, multiple nestie layers, ribbon, lace, pearls, a big flower, sheer ribbon and some twine to finish things off.

I absolutely LOVE this script from Verve's You and I set.  Totally elegant and right up my alley.   Needless to say, I can't wait to use this set again.  Until then, I'm stretching out my Guest Diva Verve watermark as long as I can so the memory lingers just a little bit longer... happy sigh :)

Have a glorious day!

Marisa this is so sweet. I love the fiber you used in your ribbon and flower arrangement. The layered die cuts are gorgeous especially with your designer touch of little pearls. What a gorgeous and fabulous creation to wake up to this morning my friend. Have a wonderful day!

Bear Hugs,
Carol

You've got this style mastered, Diva Marisa! What a downright beautiful card, the papers, the flower...all the things you mentioned that so appeal to my girly heart! I adore this card...it's another testament to the fact that I'm not believing your 'one creative gene' theory anymore. Sorry...cards speak louder than words... :)

As soon as I saw your card, I thought, "Ah, there is an Andrea cluster!" It looks so beautiful! As though Mrs. Ewen made it for you herself. :)
