Today's the Day!

The two new sets by Verve Visual are now available for purchase...and you will not believe your eyes when you see the price!! I'll keep it a surprise for you, but go look, QUICK, before they sell out!

This is a simple little 4 1/4" square card I made tonight with the new Seasonal Circles set. I used Blush Blossom for the card base, and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Textile folder for some texture. Then I ran over it lightly with my Brilliance Moonlight White dewdrop.

It's hard to see, but I stamped the flower outline on the center circle, and then embossed the sentiment on top with Silver EP. I punched out the circles, added some Diamond Stickles to the scallops, and resisted the urge to doodle or add anything else EXCEPT the ribbon (of course).

I am TICKLED PINK about the brand spanking new member of the Verve Design Team, Charmaine Ikach! I love Charmaine's work and she is such a sweetheart. We're so happy to have her!

Oh, and a little bit of blog business...I made my card pic a little bigger...what do you think? Good, bad, don't care? Just wonderin!
