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


After a few month of winter, nothing soothes the soul like a burst of vibrant color. This boho kids bedroom does that and more! Feel free to take your inspiration from the photo or the color combo, whatever suits your fancy! We can't wait to see what you create.

This month I met a very special lady who inspired me with her honesty, integrity and desire to change her life. Being with her was an honor and I wanted to make a special gift for her - so I created a framed piece for her using the inspiring newly released Rise Above stamp set and the Partly Cloudy die set.  I didn't follow the color scheme exactly above - just saw sunshine and couldn't wait to use it! I love this sentiment and the coordinating dies!!

I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the Rounded Rectangular die and matted it with the Rounded Scallop Frame,  I added the Heart Quartet dies to the center of the sun and to the side of the scalloped frame :) I finished it off with some bling to the hearts and some gray stain ribbon to either side of the card :) I can't wait to give this to her tomorrow!


Card Ingredients:
Stamp Set: Rise Above stamp set from Verve Stamps
Cardstock: DP, white cardstock
Accessories: gray satin ribbon, Best Glue Ever, bling, frame

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're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop!
