Sunshine Sneak Peek

Hey Everyone! The sneak peeks of the newest Verve stamps start today over on the Verve Blog. There's a chance to win, so be sure to head on over and check them out. The Divas are sharing some of the plain janes (individual stamps) that are releasing this Friday night, so I thought I'd share one too.



My sample card uses the Sunshine plain jane sentiment, and {oops!} it looks like I snuck in a little preview of the set they'll be peeking tomorrow, Wishful Elegance. The layout started out as Amber's Viva La Verve! sketch for this week, but I took a few {ahem... maybe more than a few!!!} creative liberties with the sketch and this is is what happened. The twist for the week was to use baja breeze, summer sun and more mustard. I really didn't remember what an awful color more mustard is all by itself until I pulled it out - there's a reason I only had 1 sheet of it in my arsenal! LOL! Well, a little tone on tone stamping and some chocolate chip matting toned down the colors quite well, and I actually kind of like the finished card.

Okay, there's lots going on for our release, so I'm going to leave you with a few links so you can't say you didn't know. :)
