If you have come here from our newest Lesley's blog you are right on track.  If not, you can go to the Verve blog for the hop list to get caught up.


What a fun colour combination!!  I love orange and turquoise together, but in this case, I have a bit more grey than turquoise because that is the way my paper patterns worked!  I used this week's Viva La Verve sketch for my card, and since I am desperately low on birthday cards, I pulled out one of my favorite birthday stamps, the Happy Birthday Plain Jane.  Used the Stitched Pennant Die Set for the turquoise banner, and the smallest leaf die from the Beautiful Flowers Die Set to help create a bit more sustenance to the butterfly and upper half of the card.

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
