Hi friends! It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's contest week at Mojo Monday! Play along with this week's sketch and you just might win some Verve of your very own! And with Verve's new release this Friday, May 10, there will be even more Verve to choose from if you're one of our winners. We'll have up to 7 winners, so the more participants the merrier!
My card uses a bunch of old favorites from Verve and that Park Bench paper collection I've been enjoying so much lately. I stamped and cut out the Notebook Paper Plain Jane, then matted with the Rounded Rectangle Die. The Fringe Flower Plain Jane is stamped and paper pieced onto the notebook and I pierced the holes in the notebook and loosely wrapped some twine around as binding and tied a bow with a button. The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Florals set and is cut and matted using the Charming Banner Die Set. I used the Flag It Die Set for the little chevron flag, attaching it with a mini library clip.
My border uses the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set and I added a little black on black liquid pearls for a fun texture. I finished off with some rounded corners and yellow pearls.
That's all for today! If you haven't already hopped through the Diva Inspirations Hop, it all starts on my post from yesterday. It's a busy week on the blog this week, so stay tuned tomorrow through Friday for the New Release Spotlight Hops leading up to Verve's May release this Friday, 5/10/13! See ya tomorrow!
And a little reminder that all of the stamps featured on today's card are on sale through Thursday, May 9. We've extended our April sale through then! Hooray for good deals!

I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years.
