Verve Release Retrospective Blog Hop

yourheartmaureenplut

Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective!  It's been a wonderful week of release celebration and the Divas and Guest Divas are back with one last look at the brand new release! Everything spotlighted is available to order in the Verve Store and is currently 20% off! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store, so read on for more!

When I first saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to create a watercolour background over white embossed hearts.  Then I started layering different elements (doily, tag, cardboard hearts, and sequins).  Then I chose my favourite sentiment from Just Breathe.  I may have to keep this card for myself! LOL
