If you like the doodled look, but have always wished you could kick it up a notch toward something a little more fancy and elegant, then Thankful Accents is for you! The imagery has just enough of a hand-drawn look, but still retains the flourishy elegance you'd expect from a Verve set. I know the Divas all say this month after month, but seriously, how does Julee DO it?! This doodled elegance blend is so fresh and unexpected - I adore it! There are some wonderful sentiments and a beautiful, large flourish-style circle image that is more the centerpiece of this set, but I have to say it's all the little bits and pieces, the accent images, that really struck my fancy the most. I've had the best time stamping these little gems into different patterns and designs, such as the pennant border I created for this card. The bold, edgy color combo is from Mercy and Teresa's current color challenge. I kept the focal point simple, but elegant with a two-layer punched butterfly framed in a narrow oval. The sentiment will go on the inside.

Another great release from Verve! The sets being released today are going to remain a permanent fixture on my stamping table! I love the fonts Julee mixed in this month, they're so fun and whimsical! The set Thankful Accents is full of fun sentiments and little accents to jazz your projects up!

I used Dark Chocolate and Aqua Mist by PTI for my colors, which I pulled from the beautiful Bo Bunny dp! I really love the fancy circle element in this stamp set, and the sentiments fit right inside! Especially when you punch them out with circle punches. It's a little light, but I stamped an accent right behind the sentiment in Aqua Mist ink, it's a really lovely effect! You may also see a bit of the polka dot stamp from Bountiful Backgrounds.
