Verve Release Spotlight: Great Friend


Hi everyone!  Welcome to today's spotlight for Great Friend.  Hands down, Julee did it again!  You will LOVE this set!  It has 6 flower bloom images, 3 leave stems and 3 amazing sentiments.

I am afraid my card doesn't do this set justice in any way, but here it is -LOL!  

I used one of Julee's Anni-VERVE-sary Sketches for this card.  I stamped the flower bloom 2 times, colored the bottom part with a copic marker and paper pieced the top one.  Isn't this one BRIGHT?  I just love the colors from the Cosmo Cricket paper, DeLovely.  They just makes me happy!!  Again, as with my other cards this week, I went with a simple card.  There's just not enough hours in the day, right?  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Divas below and see what samples they have for you today.  AND don't forget to leave some love for a chance to WIN THESE STAMP SETS!!  Winners will be announced at our Anni-VERVE-sary Bash Release Party that night.  And for even more chances to win new stamps, play along with our Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges, going on this week in our forum!
