Verve March Fan Hop and Viva la Verve!


Hello! I have a card today for the Verve Fan Blog Hop! There is still time to play along, so be sure to check out all of the info on the Verve blog here.


I was in the mood for spring when I made this card.. and who doesn't love fluttering butterflies?! I used the swirly label from Verve's Sweet Treats by first stamping the label, then cutting it out using the Classy Label Die. I stamped my sentiment (also from Sweet Treats) and cut it out using the Embossed Oval Die, then I popped it in the center of my label. I added a lace flower rosette from Pizazz Aplenty and popped a butterfly on top of it.

I used Amber's week 1 Viva la Verve sketch for March:
