It's BLOG HOP time!!!!

Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Verve Diva,{ Jen Tapler's } blog. If not, head on over to { Julee's Blog } (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.

So, here's my Verve-a-licious card!
I used two of my Verve sets, Petals and Stems and Grateful Elegance. I so adore these sets! I used the sort-of-background stamp from Grateful Elegance on the bermuda bay layer. The butterflies, from Petals and Stems, were stamped on some SU dp and cut out. The sentiment (again, from Grateful Elegance) was cut out using nesties and sponged with bermuda bay ink. The chocolate layer is up on dimensionals. And I just had to add some bling as the butterfly trails! I have to say, I was so excited to be sandwiched between two Verve divas, but now that I'm posting this, I'm a little nervous! ha!
Soooo, thanks for hopping by, hope ya like my contribution to the Verve blog hop and now it's time to hop on over to Verve diva,{ Lynda Benden's } blog, where I KNOW you'll be amazed!!!!


HUGS,
