I Miss U

Today's card is one that I made back in August for Verve's big Anni-Verve-sary celebration and neglected to share here. It's not my favorite card ever, but it does have two things going for it ... the "i" and the "u," which I die-cut out of cork with Verve's awesome new I Heart U Die Set. The "miss" comes from the coordinating You and I stamp set. So many ways to combine the chunky "i" and "u" with all sorts of sentiment combos for a trendy, graphic look. The papers are all from one of the Lime Twist My Mind's Eye pad, and the yellow and navy pieces are die-cut with Spellbinders dies (Fleur de Lis Doily Motifs and Labels Eighteen, respectively). The light yellow twine is a color I picked up from The Cat's Pajamas, and the cork is from My Favorite Things.

Be sure to check out the current Get Your Diva On challenge -- your shot at a future guest designer spot with Verve! Sankari is our host this month, and you can find out all the details HERE. Good luck!

Wishing you a fantastic week ahead!

I think the card perfectly illustrates the sentiment - no sweet embellishments, no flowers, just a simple expression. Ideal!
