Verve Sympathy Card

Happy Saturday!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend thus far or the beginning of it at least!  I am stopping by to share a card I have made based on lots of Verve love.  Verve stamps are amazing!!!  I love their designs and the quality is top notch, so make sure to check them out after visiting me!

Now my card is made on the Verve Diva Dare and the Mojo Monday sketch, because they worked so amazingly well as far as I could see.  Let's look at my card and then I'll better explain the thought process behind this:

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Webster Pages
Stamps: Verve ( flower from Dream Big and sentiment from Boarderline)
Ink: PTI and Watermark
Clear Embossing Powder
Ribbon: V's Sweet Ideas
Rhinestones: Recollections
Martha Stewart Edge Punch

The Diva Dare was based on Laurie's and Maureen's Blogs and how to mix their two styles together.  When I looked at both blogs I noticed a lot of circles on Laurie's cards, usually with the sentiment stamped on them, and something that really jumped out at me on Maureen's blog is that most of her projects include 3 clear rhinestones placed close to the sentiments.  Both of their works are amazing so encourage you to visit their pages as well!

Thanks for visiting me and leaving me some love!!!
Happy Crafting and enjoy your weekend!
