Birthday Wishes!

Hi there and welcome to the Verve Diva Inspiration Hop for May!  We're here to get your month kicked off with a bit of Verve inspiration!

If you've arrived here from Betty's Blog then you're in the right place.  If you've just happened along, head on over to the Verve Blog to start the hop from the beginning!  Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win some Verve of your very own!


Great Friend is one of my all time favorite Verve sets and I was so happy to see Verve come out with Joyful Blooms.  The same beautiful flowers as Great Friend, only smaller!  My flowers were cut out and popped up for dimension.  Each was finished with some linen thread and a button.  The sentiment was added to a flag that was cut using the Ribbon Banner die. The leaves are from Bloom and Grow and were stamped in Versamark ink and cut out with the Elegant Leaves die.  Some rounded corners and machine stitching finish the card.

Your next stop on this hop is to the wildly talented Jen del Muro's Blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
