Verve Countdown: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Welcome to day 2 of the Verve countdown! Today's spotlight is on Bloom and Grow, a fabulous new set with lots of flowers to play with! We are also spotlighting 2 new die sets: Floral Circles and Elegant Leaves. I love them both! These are my first sets of Verve dies and I must say, they are FABULOUS! They cut so beautifully!

My card today features both die sets and the spotlight stamp set which coordinates exactly with the dies!



We're counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15, with FOUR days of Spotlight Hops! And since we love to share, 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.
