Verve May 2014 Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of Verve's May 2014 Spotlight Hops!   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.

Be Blessed is my favorite set of this release.  No surprise there as you know I love flowers, all the more when they are Verve flowers with matching dies and coordinating leaf dies.  Makes me swoon every time LOL!

I tripped across this tutorial on You Tube for making a "card in a box" and though I am not a  project person, this one caught my attention as I was looking for something special to make for my mom's 80th birthday.  I used both the solid and outline flowers from the set and cut them out with the coordinating Petal Point dies.  The Sprightly Springs dies provided the leaves, and I tossed in a few hearts from the Heart Quartet die as well.  From there, it was basically creating a bouquet from all the pieces.  Sure hope she likes it as I had great fun making it!

My second card uses the Luke 1:45 Plain Jane.  I just love Verve's Plain Janes!!  I used some K & Company papers, the Banner Bundle die set, a touch of lace and some butterflies to showcase this fabulous verse.
