If you have come here from Charmaine's blog you are right on track. If you just happened up on the Hop, you can follow the list below to get caught up. Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, May 23rd.
Today's features are: Button Best, Proverbs 31:25 Plain Jane, and Pointed Petals Die Set.
My first card uses one of the sentiments from Button Best. Such a true statement about mothers no matter how old you are!
Keep coming back to this Cut and Paste paper from My Mind's Eye as I love the papers. I die cut two Rounded Scalloped Frames and layered them askew to pick up both the pink and green. A few sequins from the Pastel Sequin Mix and seam binding from Summer Sailing Ribbon Collection finished things off.
My second card uses the Proverbs 31:25 Plain Jane. Love this verse as it is a part of one of my favorite passages -- Proverbs 31:10-31.
Park Bench papers by Fancy Pants were a perfect match for the colour challenge part of the first May Viva La Verve challenge. I also used that week's sketch, along with the small butterfly from Blue Skies, matching All Aflutter die, a flower from Petals and Wings and matching Wings and Petals die, Dreamy Leaves die and a few sequins from the new Shine Bright Sequin Mix.
