Verve Release Spotlight: Kind Words and Happy Hello

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Spotlight for the Verve sets, Kind Words and Happy Hello.
My card today uses the set, Kind Words and is a double challenge card!  I used the super fun sketch from Mercy (MTSC87) AND the current Embellish Magazine Challenge to make a cute/simple card using the colors: peach, cream, kraft and sea foam green.

My card uses the flower image in the set and one of the 6 sentiments.  The pattern paper is Lullaby Lane from Webster's Pages.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the Divas below 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!
