Verve New Release Spotlight ~ Day 3

joyfulnewsday3

Good morning!!  Well just like this card says, there is joyful news this morning!!  All the new Verve sets that the Divas have spotlighted these past 3 days are available for purchase now in the Verve Store!!  Woohoo!  Today’s card spotlights a few of the new sets (Fringe Flower Plain Jane and Joyful Blooms) as well as the new Ribbon Banner Die.  As soon as I saw this die, I wanted to create a HUGE banner!  I also made 2 Fringe Flowers, but only one made it onto this first card…the second one made its way onto the next card…

It’s Friday so that means there is new sketch over in the Viva La Verve Forum!  Since the new Verve Release has a Mother’s Day sentiment in the new Joyful Blooms set, I took this as an opportunity to start a few Mother’s Day cards :)  There’s that sweet Fringe Flower again!  You saw it a few weeks ago when Hoppy Easter released, but the new Plain Jane stamp.  I dug back into my Verve binders to find this sweet sentiment from Because of You.  I think it’s the perfect addition to any Mother’s Day card.  Here’s the sketch Diva Janelle is treating us to this week…
