Viva La Verve, Baby!

I'm committed to playing in the Viva La Verve Challenges this month if it's the last thing I do! I've always loved the challenges that Amber posts, but with my Diva friend Maureen always pumping out the rocking inspiration, I feel like I absolutely have to get my butt in gear and participate.

I pulled out my Birthday Bash set for this sweet sentiment, which was perfect inside my previously unused nestability. Seriously - I'd never used my petals nesties despite them being one of the first I'd ever sad! At least it's been remedied.

Looking back at this, I think it might just get a little pomegranate-esque button on that bow before it makes it's way with the pink Victoria's Secret gift card to my sister midmonth. Still trying to use up my old SU! DP, but it sure takes a while when you do it four inches at a time and have the collection I do.

Have a wonderful day!

Stamps: Verve Birthday Bash
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate, Berry Bliss DP
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Ribbon, Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Nestabilities
