Believe Blog Hop


Welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop. If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning (http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/) and hop your way along. Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve just released called Believe. This set was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness and Verve is donating $10 from the sale of every Believe set to the Susan G Komen For the Cure foundation. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that each day should be celebrated, each moment cherished and that every little thing we can do in the fight to find a cure matters.
For my card today, I decided to combine the Verve release sketch A with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. I started by stamping my stems in Memento Tuxedo Black then adding the flowers. The two pink flowers were stamped directly on the panel, the one red was actually stamped, colored, and cut out separately. To make it more interesting, I decided to go out of the box with my flowers, and I am so glad I did!! The DP is retired SU Bella Rose and I paired it with Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette. The white was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I then added some pink May Arts ribbon, and some SU Riding Hood Red taffeta. My brads are from SU, and I used the scalloped oval punch for my sentiment.

Well, thanks for hopping by! Since I am the last stop on the hop, here is a link to the Verve Store so that you can get shopping PRONTO!! Oh, and we’ve got a special gift hidden along our hop for one lucky commenter, so if you see something you really love, give a little shout out and you just might win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!
