Welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop. If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning (Julee's Blog) and hop your way along. Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve just released called Believe. This set was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness and Verve is donating $10 from the sale of every Believe set to the Susan G Komen For the Cure foundation. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that each day should be celebrated, each moment cherished and that every little thing we can do in the fight to find a cure matters.
For my card, I strayed just a bit from the traditional pink colors usually used for Breast Cancer awareness. I didn't stray totally...just enough to be able to be able to use this card for every day occasions! I just love the message of hope that Julee has created in this set, one that is so needed!
I used K & Co patterned paper for the background framed with Dark Chocolate c.s. The paper is paper pieced from some coordinating patterned paper. For embellishments, I added a punched border and corner, some rhinestones, a decorative brad, & a satin bow.
Here's a close-up of the flower. I used three different sizes of the flower (all included in the Believe set) and popped them up for added dimension.
Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is Amber's blog! Oh, and we’ve got a special gift hidden along our hop for one lucky commenter, so if you see something you really love, give a little shout out and you just might win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!
