Wonderful Marvelous Day Two Blog Hop

Hi friends!  I'm back with Day 2 of Verve's New Release Spotlight Hops.  Today the Divas are shining their sneaky little spotlights on a set called Wonderful Marvelous and the Jeremiah 17:7 plain jane.  I'm the first stop on the hop, so I hope you'll settle in for a little inspiration.  {Oh, and don't forget to leave a little comment love as you hop about for a chance to win some Verve!}


For my card, I combined the Wonderful Marvelous set with the Jeremiah 17:7 Plain Jane to make a special card for my nephew's 19th birthday.  He's such a great kid and just returned home from his first year of college.  This verse really makes me think of him, so I thought it was the perfect fit.  I embossed the verse in black on designer paper first.  Next I embossed the flag trios in white three times on black paper and punched out with a circle punch.  Then I stamped the trios a couple more times on two coordinating papers, hand trimmed and paper pieced over the flag images.  The Happy Birthday flag is built with two sentiments from this set and I hand trimmed the ends and added a bit of detail with a black pen to make it pop.  It's attached to the card with a Tim Holtz memo pin, turned upside down. and I added a bit of black twine for interest.  The card was inspired by Janelle's Week 2 Viva la Verve sketch, but I adjusted it a bit to fit the card and to change it to a 3.5 x 5.5" card base.  The card was a big hit, both with the women in the family and my nephew.

Alrighty... time to hop on over to the next stop on the hop, the fabulous Charmaine.
