Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop Day 5...

Welcome back to Day 5 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 4 beautiful new sets and 2 coordinating die sets just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate this special 10th Anni-VERVE-sary release, we're putting on another blog hop, with a pretty cool prize!
Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves, especially since we've got a full line-up of Divas, guests and Alumni today!

Today I used Scripture Medley Five on this distressed rainbow creation...

Wanna know a secret?  I went to mask and ink up this colorful rainbow and on the first round, the masking tape ripped the paper right off a corner of the card base.  Normally at this point, I start over.  But I realized that with a link ink on top of the rip, it looked intentional. So I did another layer and this time hoped for some paper to rip off the top.  And it did.  And the next time too!  I just went back in and added a little ink on top and it worked out perfectly as a distressed rainbow.

I die cut the verse with the stitched square but I kept the negative and attached that right to a new card base.  Then I popped up the verse on fun foam.  And that is it!  A quick and easy....and distressed....rainbow card with a sentiment full of encouragement!
