Verve Release Celebration!

Happy World Cardmaking Day and welcome to Verve's October 2014 Release Celebration! Three new sets, three new dies and a sequin mix just released this morning and the Divas are here to share some of our first looks at the new goodies with you!

Today I am showcasing a wonderful new set called Pink Power, in honor of breast cancer awareness month.  Over the past five years, I have had two very close friends battle and win their wars against breast cancer, so this set is very near and dear to my heart.

If you have come here from Stacey's blog, you are right on track.  If not, you can check the Hop List below.

When I saw this silhouette I fell in love with it!!  Such a fabulous image of strength and courage!  I wanted a girly card, so used a doily for the image, added lots of bling, and topped things off by using the fabulous breast cancer Ribbon Die symbol.  Go, pink power, go!!
