New Verve Release Blog Hop

mysmilesmaureenplut

Welcome to Verve's Better Together Release Hop! There's a brand new Verve set releasing today and we're celebrating with a blog hop!

I thought it would be fun to stamp the distressed dots in the colours of the rainbow for a Spring-y effect!  I’ve added some flowers from Dream Big and that sweet little butterfly from So Fluttery for the elements in my Viva La Verve sketch this week.
