August Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight ~ Day 3

day3
Welcome to Day 3 of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night!  Up today is Words of Wisdom, a set with the most fabulous uplifting sentiments ever!  After reading all the wonderful quotes, I thought it would be fun to create a little set of mini cards, perfect to give as a gift, or to slip inside a lunch box, purse or suitcase to encourage someone I love.  I used most of the same patterned paper to keep everything coordinated…then I had some fun making my own embellishments.  I used the Rounded Rectangle Die for all the cards, but in different ways…either using one of today’s spotlighted Plain Janes or just some lined paper.  Is there anyone YOU know that would LOVE to find a little pick me up note in one of these?
