Verve Divas Inspiration Hop - April 2014

Welcome to Verve's April Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This month we've got a fabulous challenge that's sure to put a string in your step! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize!

Our April challenge is Chic Chevrons:


Chevrons are the new polka-dots! Get groovy and use this popular pattern somewhere on your creation. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or zig-zag off on your own, just show us some chic chevrons!

I have so many chevron DP that I haven't used yet and so this was such a fun challenge! I kept my card kind of CASish and let the bold background do the talking :) The banner is from the  Remember This set and the sentiment I paired it with is from the awesome Bountiful Backgrounds stamp set.


I stamped the two pennants in the Remember This stamp set - cutting out the inner one and then crimping it and popping it over the larger pennant. I then added some butterflies and finished it off with some butterflies and white gel pen and ribbon:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Remember This set and Bountiful BackgroundS
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa and Distress Broken Glass
Papers: Kraft and scrap DP
Accessories: EK success border punch, MS butterfly punch, paper crimper, photo corner rounder, white gel pen, foam dimensionals and stickles
