Believe Blog Hop

Welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop. If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning on 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.

I created this card using 3 of the "layer-able" flower images and the "Treasure this Moment" sentiment from the new Believe set:

I used a Whisper White CS base along with lots of printed digi paper from the Anticipation kit by Mandabean and Penny Springmann (Sweet Shoppe). I included some ribbon and a button for embellishment (PTI) and used an off-set circle (Spellbinders nestabilities die) to highlight the flower image.

Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is the fabulous Lynda!! 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!
