More than Love Blog Hop

Welcome to Verve's More than Love Release Hop! Over the weekend Verve released a brand new set and ribbon collection and today the Divas are hopping to share our first looks at these lovely new products! I'm the start of the hop, so pull up a chair and sit a while!  {grin}


For my card today, I went shabby chic.  I thought this sentiment from More than Love would look great on the Tim Holtz journaling ticket that fell out of my closet when I was trying to find something for another card, so that was my inspiration.  I embossed the sentiment in early espresso and did a bit of sponge and paper distressing around the ticket.  All of the paper is from the Teresa Collins World Traveler collection and I actually cut the primitive heart intending to use the other side of the paper, but I just loved the way the black damask popped against the other papers I chose, so I changed it up.  A bit of vintage lace trim, a prima flower and a whole lot of distressed edges finish things off.
