Verve Stamps: June '14 Diva Inspiration Hope

Welcome to Verve's June Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time again! So climb aboard Desination: Inspiration for a fun trip through Verveland today. In addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, we're debuting our June inspiration challenge as well! Play along for another chance to win!

Our June challenge is Winged Whimsy:
Let your creation soar by featuring wings! Think butterflies, birds, feathers or related sentiments. Celebrate the beauty of flight! Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or fly a solo mission, let's see some winged beauties!

For my project today, I used the beautiful stamp set: Bright Spirits from Verve Stamps, to create a holiday card! The challenge to use winged creatures reminded me of this stamp set that has these gorgeous sweet doves. I stamped the jingle bells so that it seems like it is holding it in his mouth:




Here is a close up of the card that I made - the dove and the jingle bells are popped up ontop of the image and I added the sentiment on the side and cut out a flag to add a little movement:

I LOVED making this fun holiday card - my first holiday card of the season! Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
