Verve Sneak Peeks have begun!

Hi everyone! Well, it's time for the Verve Stamps June release sneak peeks! We have 3 great days of peeks with the release party on Friday, June 26th. I hope you can join us, where there will be fun chatting, more cards peeked and fun prizes!!

Today's set being peeked is called Kindred Spirits. WOW! Julee never ceases to amaze me. Seriously, month after month! This set has great Fleur-de-lis images in several sizes -even a border! And, of course there are fabulous sentiments too.

My card uses one of the damask-ish images (which is actually 4 Fleur-de-lis images scrunched together in one) stamped in alternating colors. I love how I can make my own background with this set and customize it to match any paper or flower I need!!

The colors for this card actually came from Dawn's Raspberry Suite color challenge -to use Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry, Chocolate Chip and Vintage Cream. Well, I don't have the Melon color AT ALL, so I substituted ColorBox Papaya Cream (the only thing that I had that was even close). The sentiment is stamped from the SU large oval punch and I drug the edges thru the Berry Sorbet ink and then framed it with another oval punched from Chocolate Chip cs. Isn't that prima flower fabulous? Man, Prima sure does it right! I put a button with some burlap string in the center and added a couple punched branches (from Martha Stewart) on the side! Some of PTI's fabulous ribbons finish the card!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Verve Blog to check out the other Diva samples!! AND Julee has a chance for one lucky commenter to win a Verve-y prize!!
