Verve Release Spotlight Hop ~ Hope Blooms

Hi there!  Today marks the final day of peeks from Verve!  The release party starts tonight at 8:00 EST over in the Verve Forum!  I hope you can join us!

Today the Diva's are spotlighting another gorgeous new set called Hope Blooms.  Not only are the flowers in this set unique, but the sentiments (and the fonts) are perfect.  Oh, and I forgot to mention that while not desinged to go with this set, the new Floral Circle Dies coordinate beautifully with Hope Blooms.  You'll se on my card......


Don't you love the mixed font?  I love the bold font mixed with the soft and scripty.  Gorgeous.  I used Andrea's Viva La Verve sketch for my card and paired it with some Picket Fence DP from LilyBee Designs.  I'm not a fan of purple, but I LOVE it in this pad, especially mixed with red.

I stamped the small and medium sized flower in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a piece of the Picket Fence DP.  The large and medium Floral Circle Dies coordinate beautifully with the Medium and Small Flowers from Hope Blooms.  I used the beautiful leaves from the set spotlighted yesterday, Bloom & Grow along with the new Elegant Leaves Die.  I'm addicted to these leaves!  A decorative brad and some pearls finish the card!


Now don't forget there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
