Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to the first Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a fun blog hop! Verve's anniversary will always be special to me as it marks my becoming a DIVA! So, I also celebrate my 1 year anniversary as a Diva today!!
The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party Verva-licious, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!

My card shows you all a SUPER Sneak Peek of two of the AMAZING August Release sets (release date of August 14th)! The shoe, purse and sentiment come from Express Yourself and the pink striped embossed image is from Bountiful Backgrounds. The shoe and purse were embossed in black and cut out. The striped vertical panel was stamped and embossed with clear EP. I used a tiny flower punch with a tiny Zva bling (I cut them from the flourish) in the center as the shoe bow, matching purse clasp and card adornment. The pink felt flowers are from Creative Cafe and the centers are epoxy stickers from Creative Imaginations. The layout is from this week's Fall to Layout 52.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Tami's blog -The Journey of Life, for some more Verve-y goodness.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Bountiful Backgrounds, Express Yourself
Paper - Black, white, pink pirouette
Accessories - clear and black EP, tiny flower punch (provo craft), su scallop border punch, pink felt flowers, swiss dots EF, epoxy stickers (Creative Imaginations), Zva Creative tiny bling
