Verve Diva Inspirations May Challenge and Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop
There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until June 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

The end of spring always brings a touch of wanderlust.  This collection of bracelets has me wishing for a sun drenched road trip filled with gypsy wonder and delight. 


For my project today, I decided to use the MojoMonday sketch #447 as a place to start for my card. I used the stamp sets: Big Wish (For the cake and image panel) and the sentiment: Remember This (for the sentiment panel). Here is a snippet of the sketch (on the left) - I decided that the two wraps of ribbon on either side could be in place of the other circles and the tilted image panel became a circle instead - here is how it all turned out:


Card Ingredients:
Verve stamps: Big Wish and Remember This stamp set
Cardstock: Taylored Expressions (granny smith, salt water taffy, kraft, sugar cube)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: corner rounders, bling, glue tape, copics, ribbon and foam tape.

There's no script for this inspiration... channel your inner gypsy, go floral, follow our color pattern or forge your own path. We can't wait to see what you create!
Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Sunday, June 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!
