July Diva Inspirations HOP

HI Everyone!!
Today is our Monthly Verve Diva Hop where we all create a project using some of our Favorite previously released Verve Stamps!!! If you are coming from the amazingly talented and super sweet Julee - then you are in the right place! One of my favorite Verve stamp sets is Beautiful You (okay - you are right, they are all my favorite!!) But this set has so many beautiful sentiments, I especially love the sentiment: "What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls a butterfly." So beautiful!
I wanted to create a simple happy card with this sentiment - so I tried to keep it CAS and  used one of Julee's beautiful previous Mojo Monday sketches (MojoMonday Sketch # 244)  for my card. I embossed the back and used some scrap pieces of MME paper and added a little bling and a line of liquid pearls to finish it off.
















Card Ingredients:
Paper: DP from stash (MME) and gold paper from PTI
Stamps: Beautiful You stamp set from Verve Stamps
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa mixed with Tuxedo Black
Accessories: embossing folder (TH), bling, ribbon from American crafts, circle nesties, dimensionals and liquid pearls.

I loved making this card - it was so nice to keep it simple and such a beautiful sentiment to use - please check out all the gorgeous sentiments from the Beautiful You stamp set! Also while you are there please check out the huge SALE that is happening at Verve Stamps!!!



There is also a hidden prize on today's blog hop - so leave a little love as you hop along!! Next on the hop is the sweet and amazingly creative SONY!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
