  2. Oh Teresa! This is, as always, absolutely gorgeous! The pink and brown are very 'Verve' colours, now I know why you were drawn to that cupcake picture!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win the fabulous Verve, they are all on my wish list (along with every other Verve set! Ha ha!)

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
