Verve Divas Inspiration Hop - August 2014

Welcome to Verve's August Diva Inspirations Hop. If you are coming over from Karen's amazing blog then you are in the right place - you can also start at the top of the blog roll over at Julee's if you are starting here! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our August inspiration challenge for another chance to win!
Our August challenge is Sequined Stunner:

Sequins are the perfect embellishment - sparkly, affordable and with lots of texture. Add some sequins to your project this month to make it a sequined stunner! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not. 

For my project, I chose to keep the layout very simple and keep the focus on this wonderful sentiment: "It's a Wonderful Life" - I simply love that sentiment and love this stamp set called Remember This (I seriously do love this stamp set - the banners and sentiment are perfect for every occasion!!) - if you are ever wondering what a good stamp set to purchase is either for you or your crafty one - I totally recommend this one!




I kept the colors and layout simple and sprinkled a few sprinkles on the top to match the dots on the bottom - usually my cards are so layered, but for this one I decided to go the quick and easy layout road and the sprinkles were such a fun touch - I love these challenges that make me use the stuff in my craft room that I purchased years ago!!

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!
