** Third post of the day, so scroll down for my Curtain Call and Mojo Monday cards **


Welcome to Verve's June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  This week the Verve Divas and a few special guests will be spotlighting 5 new sets, 2 Plain Janes and 4 new die sets! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 6/19. So come hop along with us and see what's new at Verve!

If you have come here from Amber's blog you are right on track.  If  you just happened upon the Hop, today's hop list is a bit lower down or you can head over to Verve Blog for the full Hop List.

Today's spotlight is shining on the Get Together set illustrated by Julee Tilman and the new Psalm 19:14 Plain Jane.

I pulled out some old Stella and Rose MME papers for this card as I love them and wanted them to bring out the coffee theme on this card.  I love this cup image from Get Together and wanted it to take front and center so I kept the card on the simpler side.  I fussy cut it out for a bit of dimension, sponged the edges and took a lesson from the master (aka: Julee, Mrs Verve herself) and did a bit of white gel pen outlining of the butterflies on the cup to give them a bit more dimension.
