July Diva Dare - Day 3

Good morning!  It's Charmaine bringing you Day 3 of the July Diva Dare!  This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Sentimental About Paper!

I LOVE using just a Verve sentiment on a card. . .especially with an embossing folder!  It really lets those wonderful Verve sentiments take center stage!  My answer to this month's dare did not use an embossing folder, though.  I decided to go with patterned paper.  I used the Uncommon Collection from Authentique paired with a sentiment from the New Mercies set.  I also used the Flutterby Die with black cardstock along with some ribbon and pearls.  The sentiment panel is die cut with the Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities.   

Want to know how you can win some fabulous new VERVE GOODIES?
