Verve New Release Spotlight: Fabulous You


Verve has begun its countdown to our big Anni-Verve-sary release this Friday - yay!! New Release Spotlights began yesterday and continue through Thursday. Be sure to tune in to the Verve blog each day for a list of Divas with eye candy to share. Julee has also put together five amazing Anni-Verve-sary Sketch Challenges for big-time chances to win stamps. Details are posted HERE.

Friday's release is one of the biggest and definitely the best to date. I'm wild about every single one of the new sets, and I'm betting you will be, too! Today, I'm sharing a card made with Fabulous You.


This gorgeous set has eight magnificent sentiments geared toward encouraging and uplifting others, plus an elegant decorative frame and two coordinating accent elements.The font treatments on the sentiments are simply amazing! One of them, a sweet and simple "hi there" was the perfect fit for my design. For a shabby look, I've staggered the ends of the woven strips, ink distressed the paper edges, and incorporated some pinking on the paper edges.

Would you like to win today's spotlight sets? Leave comment love for the Divas on their spotlight posts and you'll automatically be entered into a hidden drawing for each day's sets!
