Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's November Release Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online shop on Friday, November 4.
Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beyond Measure stamp set and coordinating Christmas Spirit Die Set.

If you got here from the wonderfully talented Charmaine's blog, you are in the right spot!  

For my card I started with a piece of vintage cream card stock.  I lightly brushed on Ranger tumble glass distress ink.  I built the color up slightly from bottom left outward and upward.  I stamped one of the leafy sprigs from Beyond Measure using olive ink.  

Next, I die cut a the large pennant from Verve's Stitched Pennant die set in vintage cream card stock.  I die cut and stamped the dove and tiny twig from Beyond Measure.  I chose to heat emboss in the gold the dove and the focal sentiment from the same set.  

I added a strip of gold foil card stock to the base of the card. 
I finished my card with some loose threading and a few gold sequins from Verve's Gold Package Sequin Mix.
