Challenge deadline: Sunday, May 20.
Prize: $25 gift voucher to the Verve online store!


It's very rare that I duplicate a card - but Mother's Day has snuck up on me this year! In the interest of getting things in the post on time (I am terrible at this!) I used the wonderful Button Best stamp set and Petal Points Cut Above Dies to make two matching cards today. 


I've also used a die from the Cupcake Frame set for my focal layer, and cut the Sprightly Sprigs in vellum to adorn my blooms.


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
