All things Grow with Love

Hi Everyone,

Happy Monday! Hope that you had a sweet weekend - its hard to believe that we are half way through April - too fast - I tell you - just too fast. Speaking of fast - the April Release Verve Party moved so fast it was hard to keep up and to savor all the yummy creations that everyone sneak peeked! Today over at the Verve Blog, Laurie has put together the April Verve After Party post where each of the Verve Divas has shared one of their favorite creations :) It's hard to pick a favorite - I loved creating with this month's new stamps - each are so beautiful - so many beautiful sets!'

For today's post - I picked this card created with the gorgeous Bloom & Grow stamp set - I adore these beautiful flowers - there are so many flowers in this stamp set (and there are so many different things that you can do with them (layer them, stamp over them, etc.) I stamped and cut out three of the flowers along with using the brand new Elegant Leaves die that was also released with this month's Verve Stamps, along with the previously released Jotted Hearts die:

Card Ingredients:

I loved creating this creation - and can't wait to make more with all these  lovely Vervey stamps!
