Verve Diva Inspiration Hop - Feb2016 - Within Your Heart...

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 until March 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

The pop of color in this industrial style loft speaks of the hope of spring in the midst of winter. Kind of like February... it's still cold and wintry, but new life is on the horizon. 

I love the above inspiration pic - so many options! I decided to use the Blue Skies stamp set for my card today (to be honest, I not only love this stamp set, but it was still on my desk from my last card and I just had to use it again because I absolutely love each of these inspiring sentiments! For this card I used: "Within your heart keep one still secret place where Dreams may go." - Louise Driscol  - so inspiring! I also added a little banner using the Award Banner Die and used a heart element using the Jotted Heart die. I finished it with this beautiful butterfly stamp and added a little gloss to it and then some bling to the banners - Just absolutely love this stamp set:

Stamps: Blue Skies stamp set from Verve Stamps
