Verve Stamps Smallest Things


My card is C.A.S.E.d from Bridget at Bridget's Paper Blessings.
I saw her card on the CASology challenge blog awhile back and thought it was just gorgeous.
Then I realized I have the MFT Chevron die that she used so I can try to make one too.
Bridget used white textured card stock and in my minds eye I saw a pop of color.  The sentiment is a stamp from Verve Visual called Smallest Things, the hearts are from another MFT die-namics heart border die.
It's President's Day weekend and Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps is hosting a Virtual Card making party!  There are many different hostesses with the main thread and links to the hostesses challenges on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog here.   A new challenge hostess will be posted every few hours this Saturday and Sunday -
Erika is hosting the first challenge on her blog Scrappin' Intervention and it's to make cards 
using zig zags, oh ya, I have zig zags =)

Thanks for all your nice comments I have a few links to the Chevron die for you, I found it here , here, on E Bay and My Favorite Things sells the die too.

I hope you all have a nice long weekend and have some time to do the things you enjoy,
  thanks for visiting my blog!

Aww! My son was all about everything Winnie the Pooh when he was a baby. This sentiment makes me wax nostalgic. :) He isn't so into Winnie anymore. But I still am! I love your colors and that is the cutest sentiment ever.

Fantastic card! I have the EK Success Zig Zag punch - bet it would accomplish simular results. I love your card so much that I had to "pin" it on Pinterest.
