New Verve...Peace on Earth

Welcome to Day 1 of our Verve release Spotlight Hops!  We'd love to have you hop along with the Divas over the next few days as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve this Friday night! This release is full of heartfelt, joyful sentiments and delightful seasonal images. I had a blast creating with these! This card I made for today is using the Peace on Earth set:


I was away this weekend at a Scrapbook 'getaway'...I mean how awesome is that...a big table to sprawl out all my stuff, fed every 4 to 6 hours...chocolate at every turn, what more can a girl ask for? Oh, yeah...they had massages appointments set up too! Anyway, I started out stamping the sentiment onto a banner and attaching just a peek of a doily. I then layered a length of Crushed Silky ribbon (ruffled), white lace, gingham ribbon and then some hemp tied into a bow over a cross that was stamped and cut out. I added some heart buttons in coordinating colors, and some liquid pearls around the perimeter for interest.
