Artful Elegance

Everyone should have at least a few stamps in their repertoire that are so classy, striking and beautiful they can pretty much stand on their own. Verve's soon-to-be-released Artful Elegance is one of those sets for sure -- simple elegance at its best! The scroll pattern reminded me of the ornate wrought-iron fencing that surrounds the historic homes and immaculate gardens of the French Quarter in New Orleans. I chose my earthy greens with those gardens in mind, then added black satin ribbon and a little bling to finish off my more formal look.

For more peeks at this gorgeous set, as well as another set called Notes of Prayer, stop by the Verve blog. And remember, the Anni-VERVE-sary fun continues today and tomorrow in the Verve Forum.

Have a great day!
