Verve August Release Spotlight Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary August Release Spotlight Hop Day 1!

Verve Stamps May 2016 Spotlight Hops

I was thrilled to be asked by Julee to be a Guest Diva for this new release! It's just 
around the corner and for the next couple of  days we'll be shining our creative spotlights
 on the new Verve sets and dies releasing this Friday, August 26. Today we're sharing
inspiration featuring the new Scripture Medley 4 compilation set. 
Check out the Verve Blog today for more on this set!

If you hopped over here from Marisa's blog, then your in the right place!

For my card using the new Scripture Medley 4 stamp set I chose to use the 
Jeremiah 17:7 verse. I had been thinking that it had been awhile since I made a
good guy card so this verse was perfect! I used some of my favorite
paper and enamel dots from the Echo Park Jack and Jill collection. I stamped
the verse in CTMH Slate ink then popped it up with some 3D Foam Squares.
I added some banners for a bit of extra color, then cut out one of the
crosses from the Cross Die Set. Then I finished up with some enamel dots!

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Betty! If you just stumbled upon this hop, you
can check out the master list at the bottom of my post and start from the beginning!
