Verve Diva Blog Hop



Yep!  You are in the right place!  And if you heard me squeal a few days ago, its because I got an email from Julee asking to be a Guest Diva over at Verve for the month of August!  I am sooo excited to share and also to hop along with these amazing girls!  You should have stopped here from Christyne's blog and then I am the last stop on the hop!   If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE for a full list of participants.

Here is my card for today's hop...

For my card, I used stamps and dies from the Bloom and Grow set.  I cut out individual leaves and tucked them behind the popped up flowers.  I mad my own banner out of a 2" piece of kraft cardstock and then used a square punch to get the banner ends.

I finished it off with some buttons and a sentiment!  

I can't wait to share more with you this month!  Stay tuned for Verve's release!  It is FANTASTIC!!

Have a great day!
