Verve December release Spotlights -Day One

Hi everyone!  Welcome to day one of Verve Stamps' December release!  Today we are spotlighting the two fabulous sets, Amazing Wishes and Wordy Birds.

My card today uses the set Amazing Wishes which is a fantastic set of 13 sentiments and 2 flowers.  You will LOVE the diverse sentiments in this set (actually, in BOTH sets)!  I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #167 for this card.  P.S. where DOES she get her amazing sketches?  I couldn't make one of these to save my life!!  lol!
I finally used some of the Quite Contrary papers from MME that I have had in my stash for, ohhhh, almost a year!  I paper pieced the flowers from the set and outlined them in Stardust stickles.  I love how the clear stickles really accentuates the color of the ink you put them over -doesn't it look like I used chocolate stickles (which don't exist)??

Here is the list of all the Divas who are hopping today.  If you get lost along the way, Julee will have the master list on her blog since the Project Parade is still going on over on the Verve Blog.  Be sure to leave some love along the way as 1 lucky commenter will win the sets being spotlighted today!!
