Golden Wishes Day 2 Blog Hop

Hi friends!  We're back at it with Day 2 of Verve's June New Release Blog Hops. I sure enjoyed hopping along yesterday and can't wait to see what the Divas have cooked up for today.



I'm the first stop along today's hop, so settle in for some fun as we shine our sneaky spotlights on the new Deco Borders set that will release this Friday!  We're giving the set away to a random commenter along today's hop, so be sure to leave a little shout out as you hop about!  :)

This set is one of two illustrated by Chaitali Narla this release.  She had another BIG release last week with the birth of a new baby girl, so was unable to hop along with us today.  It's been great fun working with her (she's the NICEST person on the planet!)  and having her illustrate for Verve this past year, but sadly this is her last release with Verve.  We wish her much success in motherhood and in all of her future creative endeavors!


As soon as I saw Chaitali's concept for this set, I thought of elegant clean & simple cards.  And I must say, my card for today turned out just like I pictured it would!  (Love it when that happens!)

My parents are celebrating their 50th anniversary next month and so I went with a golden theme for my card, embossing the sconce border in gold on white cardstock and then the Best Wishes sentiment on a vellum circle.  The butterflies are cut from shiny cold and vellum using the new Butterfly Dreams Die Set we'll be peeking later this week.  I added a bit of gold cardstock to the top and bottom, then added a few score lines and was done.  Easy peasy!

Now that I'm looking at it, I'm wondering if Best Wishes is an okay sentiment for a golden anniversary?  I know it's great for weddings, but best wishes on the next 50?  LOL  What do you think?  Maybe I'll swap it out with the Anniversary Wishes sentiment from On Occasion that has a similar font treatment. Either way, I love the way the card turned out so beautifully without much effort.

I hope you've enjoyed today's spotlight! If you want to see more of this set from me, I have another card on the Verve Blog today.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Stacey!
