Verve October Diva Inspirations Hop


Welcome to the World Card Making Day edition of Verve's Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. Along today's hop you'll see some fresh new ideas for some beloved older sets, as well as some fantastic pairings of our latest release with existing sets. It's sure to be a treat, and we've got treats to give away, too! 

If you've come from Maureen's Blog, you're in the right place!! I used a sentiment from one of my favorite Verve sets, Words of Wisdom.  I paired it up with a "congratulations" card I cut using my Silhouette SD.  I'm not sure how well you can see it, but I put a transparency over top that I stamped with palm trees and a surfer. . .and then the Dream Big was stamped and embossed in white on black cardstock and adhered to the transparency. 

Next on the hop is Christyne!  I'm sure she has something fabulous to show you!!
