My card features a sentiment from Bright Spirits and the new Frosty Snowflakes Die Set (which coordinates with the snowflakes in one of my all-time favorite Verve sets, Christmas in the Air, from two years ago). I had the beginnings of a Mojo 214 sketch laid out with leftovers from my day one spotlight card, but I set it aside, thinking it wasn't very "Christmas" and didn't really work with what I had in mind for the rest of the stamps and dies previews. Then yesterday I tossed on a few leftover snowflakes and thought it looked plenty wintry after all! The beautiful scripty "Peace" sentiment, from Bright Spirits, is punched with a Stampin' Up oval punch, then layered onto a flag/banner strip, then a pink Classy Label die-cut, and then a kraft Rounded Rectangle die-cut. I accented with black buttons, pink pearls, and a random application of silver vintage glass glitter around the edges.

Here's the Mojo 214 sketch:


It's a contest week at Mojo Monday, too! Upload your sketch creation to the Mojo 214 post and you could win a Verve set of your choice. Good luck!

Thanks so much for hopping with the Verve Divas this week. Your sweet and enthusiastic comments mean the world to me! Glad you're liking the new Verve!! And before I go, a huge shout-out to the three super talented guest Divas this month: Gretchen, Vickie, and Wanda. Their projects have been amazing!
