Thoughts & Prayers - AVS Day 4 Hop

Hi friends!  Happy Sunday!  It's Day 4 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops and today the Divas are sharing sneak peeks of a soon-to-be-released set called Wonderfully Made and the Praying For You Plain Jane.

I'm the start of the hop, so grab a cup of coffee, sit back and click along the hop to your heart's content.  As per usual, we've hidden one lucky commenter on one of the hop spots today will win today's featured stamps, so be sure to leave a little love on each blog as you hop about.


After a more masculine card yesterday, I went all girly with today's card, using a pink, green and black color combo.  The flower and sentiment are both from Wonderfully Made  and I've colored with PanPastels and cut and layered the flower pieces in the tole fashion.  Next up I added some accents with the new Flourished Trim Die, highlighting all of the black trim with some black liquid pearls.  A little Victorian lace trim at the bottom and a big wrinkled ribbon bow up top finish things off.

Well, there's lots to see, so I'll keep this short and let you get on with the hop!  Up next is Laurie!!!  Oh, and don't forget to head on over to the Verve Blog to get the scoop on prizes, deadlines and a little back story on today's stamps.
