Yep, this is a quick little peak of the new Verve stamp set, Abundanat Blessings, to be released on September 10. I fell in love with Abundant Blessings the first moment I saw it, especially the silhouettes. They make for such quick and elegant cards, like this one.
I knew I wanted sophisticated, so I chose my color palette of vanilla, black and kraft. After stamping the florals (those are three separate stamps), I layered the panel with different sized borders. The solid black vintage dies, as well as the vanilla strip behind them, add to the graphic feel of the card. I added a few softening accents with the ribbon and tiny gemstones on the flowers and by the sentiment, which is from Artful Elegance.

Whew! I think that covers it.
