Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight - Day 8


Welcome to Day 8 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops. Today, we're taking a look at Borderline, a sensational set of both borders and labels, plus Verve's usual array of awesome sentiments. AND, are you ready? Verve is coming out with mini versions (squeal) of the popular label dies: the Mini Classy Label, Mini Vintage Oval, and Mini Bookplate. Today's peeks are going to be fabulous! Here's the full hop list:

1. Julee9. Charmaine
2. Laurie S.10. Janelle
3. Maureen11. Betty
4. Teresa12. Christyne {Guest}
5. Tosh13. Laurie W. {Guest}
6. Amber14. Jen S. {Guest}
7. Amy15. Susan
8. Andrea


For my card, I picked out one of the new borders (the row of hearts) and a super sweet sentiment, "hugs from afar." The two hearts were die-cut using one of the hearts in Verve's Wavy Hearts Die Set. The layout is based {for the most part} on today's new Deconstructed Sketch, #66:


I switched to a rectangular card, and replaced the banner with some jute string. The papers are from Prima's lovely Nature Garden 6x6 collection.
