Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight - Day 7


Welcome to Day 7 of our Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight Hops! Today we're featuring a very sweet set, Learning to Sail, along with another new border die (yay!), the Flourished Trim die. My anemic masculine card stash is in dire need of replenishment, and I thought the darling boat image from Learning to Sail, paired up with some Simple Stories Awesome papers, would make for a fun masculine combo. The boat is entirely paper pieced onto a graph background. "Life Is But A Dream" is stamped onto a ledger pattern and slipped, tab-style, behind a vertical strip of stars.

I can't wait for you to see the amazing sentiments in this set, so if you haven't already done so, hop around to see all of today's spotlights. Leave comments along the way for a chance to win today's featured products.
