Anni-Verve-sary Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Teresa’s blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.

I made this anniversary card using Verve’s Budding Blossoms and the sentiment from Anniversary Birds (and Verve’s colors!).  I love the fact that the Budding Blossoms set is sooo versatile! I colored in the flower using my prismacolor pencils (my favorite!) inked around the edges of the Spellbinders label – that has been a favorite technique of mine lately! 
I used the sketch from the SCS Verve challenge – I thought that would be appropriate :) As we are working our way around the house this year for inspiration (master bedrooms this month) Amber was nice enough to open up the inspira4231813588180Ption a little further to an entire web site.  Good thing – I saw this paper and knew  I wanted to use it for this blog hop! Here is my inspiration from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Ramona's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

Stamps: Verve
Ink: Colorbox, Ancient Page
Paper: SEI, Bazzill, Coredinations
Glitter, Ribbon, Spellbinders, Half Pearls
