Verve Diva July Inspiration Hop: Belated Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone!!

It's 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! You have the rest of the month to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our July challenge is Sensational Stripes
Stripes go with everything! Make them nautical, or pair with florals for a graphic look. Use stripes however you're inspired! Use the inspiration graphic or head off in your own direction, just show us your stripes! 

I decided to use the colors from the challenge along with the stripe challenge with the stamp set: Small Packages - love the cupcakes in this stamp set and went with the small cupcake that I stamped a few times and then layered them next to each other in the frame stamp. I added some paper piecing to the cupcake and then finished with some bling for cherries and the sentiment "Belated Birthday Wishes" underneath:

Card Ingredients:
Stamp sets: Small Packages stamp set from Verve Stamps
Inks: London Fog and Tuxedo Black from Memento Stamp sets
Papers: DP from stash (MME), Earl Grey (TE), Sugar Cube (TE)
Accessories: Best Glue Ever, Foam dimensionals, bling, grey stain ribbon

As always, I loved playing along and can't wait to see all the other creations (including yours!) with this challenge!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Sankari :)
