Verve New Release Spotlight ~ Day 2

Good morning!  It’s Day 2 of the Verve New Release Spotlights.  The Divas are showcasing 2 stamp sets, Small Celebrations and  Super Dad, 1 plain jane stamp, Fringe Flower, and the fabulous Ribbon Banner Die!  All will be available for purchase tomorrow morning!  My first card is a little early for Father’s Day, but this could be a birthday card for Dad too!  There is a fun little stitched border for the Ribbon Banner die in the Super Dad set as well as this fun, bold sentiment and line of stars.  Yep, there are 3 images on that one banner!  My next card shows a little more feminine card…the sentiment is from Small Celebrations and fits perfectly inside the Ribbon Banner border image.
