Verve May Release Retrospective Hop


Welcome to Verve's May Release Retrospective!  It's been a fabulous release week at Verve and today the Divas and Guest Divas are back with another dose of inspiration using the brand new release! Everything spotlighted is available to order in the Verve Store and is 25% off through the end of May! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store!

 It's been a week since the release and I haven't let go of these flowers from Beautiful Things.  I had some paper I had watercoloured on my desk waiting to be used so I die cut them then stamped the flowers in black.  I wanted to echo the gray stripes of the patterned paper so made my Elegant Leaves gray while adding some little green leaves from the new Beautiful Flowers Die Set.  I added another little flag stamped with a sentiment from our last releases Simply Amazing set.  This card is for our secretary at the end of the school year next month.  She definitely is a "beautiful soul."
