June Diva Inspirations Blog Hop


Hi Everyone,

Today over at the Verve Blog - we are doing a June Diva Inspirations Blog Hop which I assure you is truly full on with inspiration - these ladies are amazing!! There is also a completely FABulous sale - so please hop on over and check out all the details of the Vervey Sale goodness as well as all the ways that you could win some Verve over at the Verve Stamps Blog.


For my card today - I used the Mojo Monday sketch #193 from this week's Mojo Monday (this week there was the option to go circle or square) with one of my favorite stamp sets Hope Blooms. I love all the flowers in this set and the fonts are magically delicious! I used the large flower and colored and cut it out and popped it up in the center of the sketch and added a little twine to the button in the center. The sentiment "happy birthday" hangs from a tie to the ribbon and I finished it with just a wee bit of liquid pearls and a vellum butterfly




Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Hope Blooms from Verve Stamps
Paper: CC Circa 1934 collection and black Bazzill cardstock
Ink: Memento Ladybug Red ink and Tuxedo Black
Accessories: liquid pearls, spellbinders, dimensionals, yellow button from BG, twine, ribbon, butterfly punch from Martha Stewart and bling.

I am in the midst of birthdays, weddings, baby showers and graduation parties - I can't even begin to tell you how crazy it is around here - and I am so glad that I could make this birthday card for a dear friend of mine - she loves flowers, is an amazing gardner and I wanted to create a simple neutralish card with a pop of color here and there. I love these stamps - and can't wait to see what everyone has created today! Please hop by and check out all their wonderful creations - and also please check out the Verve Stamps blog for all the details of the SALE that you don't want to miss!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs,
Sankari :)
