Thankful Accents

Have you stopped by the Thankful Hearts Blog Party on the Verve blog yet? If not, be sure to check in and catch up on all the challenges and set reveals that we've been posting all day long. You just *know* there are lots of fun chances for prizes, as well as some pretty yummy eye candy along the way!

We just now revealed the final set for the evening - Thankful Accents. What an awesome set!! I had so much fun working with it. Here is the sample I'm showing on the Verve blog:

And a detail shot:

To see the rest of the set and Amber's sample project, go HERE. The color combo came from Mercy and Teresa's color challenge from earlier today. Details on that are HERE.

Next is a card I made for the sketch challenge that Laurie and Tosh posted earlier today. Details on that challenge can be found HERE.

The little hearts in my bouquet are from Thankful Accents, and the heart border on the yellow strip as well as the sentiment are from Thankful Hearts, which was revealed earlier today right HERE.

We'll be wrapping up our blog party in an hour (9 pm EST) with a Thankful Hearts Blog Hop. See you again then :)
