Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!


Verve turns two today!! I'm soo excited to be a part of this hop, hop, hop! I fell in love with Julee's images the first time I saw them and I am soo happy for her and the success of Verve. The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there and start from the beginning!

I decide since it WAS an anniversary party, to use the Anniversary Birds set :0) Here's my card;



I decided to give the card a vintage feel by adding book text on the sides and the black birds wing. I aged them a bit with ranger distress ink and did the same around the edges of the circle. I also used a white gel pen to give my little birdie some polkie's to match the pp :0)

I hope you like the card. I cant wait to hop and see what everyone else has done. What a fun way to party!!

And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky "love leaver" on the mystery blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So, if you’re feeling the love, give me and the rest of the bloggers a little shout out and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to SPIKE’s blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness. Have a wonderful day!!

Recipe:
Stamps: Verve Anniversary Birds
Paper: SU!, Book text
Ink: Memento Black, Ranger Distress Ink - Sepia, White Gel pen, Copics
Accessories: Offray ribbon, EK Success Scallop punch, CB and nestabilities, Colorbok accents (heart and brads), stitching
