Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight, Day Six: Making A Statement


Welcome to the sixth and final Anni-VERVE-sary spotlight hop! What a week it's been!! All of the sets and dies we've peeked this week will be available in the store tonight at 11 pm ET. Join us in the Verve Forum for our release party, beginning at 9 pm.

Also, another bit of Verve news ... Get Your Diva On, our monthly guest designer contest, is going on now. Jackie is hosting this month and has chosen a tag theme. Read all about it HERE.

Remember, one lucky commenter from today's hop will win the sets and dies featured today, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

Today, the Divas are featuring a sweet set called Making a Statement as well as two more dies, the Rounded Scallop Frame and Loopy Blooms. I've put together a friendship card using this week's Mojo Monday sketch and some Authentique Splendid papers. The Loopy Blooms die-cuts are stacked on top of an accordian-fold rosette, the sweet birds in this set are paper pieced, and I've split the sentiment in half -- the first part is stamped onto a Curvy Bookplate die-cut peeking out from the horizontal panel, and the second part is on a sentiment flag tucked behind the accordian-fold rosette.



Here's the Mojo Monday #203 sketch I used:
