Welcome to Verve's May Release Retrospective Blog Hop!  It's been a fabulous post release week at Verve and today the Divas and Guest Divas are back with another dose of inspiration using the brand new release! All of our new products are available to order in the Verve Store and are 25% off through the end of May! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store!

If you got here from the fabulously talented 
Lori Craig's blog you are in the right place!






For my card I watercolored a bold and bright background using my Kuretake watercolors.   I stamped the heart from Love Everlasting stamp set in versamark using the MISTI and white embossed.  Next, I used the Everlasting Heart die set  to die cut the heart image from the watercolored background panel.  




I  used foam tape to pop up the heart image.  I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Things stamp set in black licorice hybrid ink.  I finished my card with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.
