Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight Hop -Day 3

Hi everyone!  Welcome to a very special blog hop.  Verve Stamps is celebrating its 10 year anniversary and I am honored that Julee invited me to participate!  For those of you who've followed me for a long time know I designed for Verve Stamps from 2008 to 2011.  It was magical in every way.  Julee is one of the most kind and generous people in the stamping industry I know.  Working with her and the Divas was amazing.  Julee, congrats on 10 years of Verve success!
Verve Stamps August 2017 Spotlight Hops
Today is Day 3 and I am hopping with the Verve Divas and guest designer!  Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you just can't wait, you can pre-order the entire release now as the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount through August 27.
Today we're sharing projects featuring the Cake and Candles stamp set, another fusion of old and new. This birthday themed compilation includes some brand new birthday sentiments with a classy modern font pairing, as well as a few re-introductions of previous sentiments and plain janes.  
My card uses the cute sentiment quote from Dr. Suess.  So fun!
I also made a little trio of birthday card tags.  The cupcakes are topped with Liquid Applique and I added a touch of stickles over it for a sprinkles effect.  I've used this layout before, it's perfect for quick little note cards.  The cupcake and simple sentiments fit it perfectly!
