Verve Diva's Inspiration Hop - One cool Chick

Hi Everyone!!

It's the 5th of the month and time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings!

Our April challenge is Bunnies and Babies

Spring is a time of birth and renewal - celebrate the season by creating a card for Easter or a bouncing new baby. Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just show us your sprightly spring creations!

I loved that springy wreath - such glorious colors to see after winter's end!! So I decide to create a wreath of sorts from the inspiration pic and used the flower stamp from the Coolest Chick stamp set from Verve stamps and stamped them around a cut circle and colored them in with copies. In the center, I stamped the sentiment: "You're the coolest chick I know"- LOVE the font on this and then popped a little chick from the set to peep out!



I wanted to "hang" the wreath like in the inspiration pic and so I used a brad and some ribbon and hung it onto the embossed Kraft card stock: 


Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Coolest Chick from Verve Stamps
Papers: Basil Pesto (TE), Toffee (TE), Sugar Cube (TE)
Inks: Lady Bug Red Memento and Tuxedo Black Memento and topics
Accessories: foam tape dimensional tape, circle nestabilities, corner chomper, brad, liquid pearls, embossing folder large circles

I loved making this sweet little card and can't wait to see all the awesome creations from the team - please hop over and check them out with me:
