Ribbon Carousel and Verve Stamps Blog Hop

WOW!  What a treat!  The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates got a chance to team up with the uber talented  Verve Stamps designers to bring you a blog hop that is sure to inspire you!

Before we get going, I would like to give a big 'ol shout out to Julee Tillman, owner of Verve Stamps, who sent myself and my fellow Ribbon Carousel Crewmates a VERY generous amount Verve goodies for participating in the hop.  Really.  Totally over the top!  Thanks, Julee!  

I inked up the Wings of Love stamp set and the Stronger Love stamp set to play along and I used the Mojo Monday #223 sketch.




I paired some pretty PP from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Union Square 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe butter mints and licorice twist CS.  I used my MFT Die-Namics circles sets 1 and 2 as well at the Verve Classy Label die to create the bottom edge of the black and cream polka dotted panel.   I added some black vintage seam binding and ivory jute and used cream Viva Decor pen to add the pearls.   


Here's the sketch:
