October Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!


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

Our October challenge is Black, White and Glam
October always has a bit of glamour and intrigue to it. A stroll through the craft store this time of year brings visions of glitzy pumpkins, gilded candelabras and rhinestones galore. So this month we’re challenging you to to get glamorous with black, white and metallics. Use the inspiration graphic or go off on your own tangent, just share a little bit of glam with us!

If you've just come from visiting Stacey, you're in the right place!! My card uses the Latte Love Digital Freebie.  I have been having lots of fun with this digital set!  I used some papers from Authentique that I found in my scrap stash.  I thought they fit the inspiration photo perfectly.  I also added some sparkle by diecutting some silver glitter paper with the Coffee Word Die as well as the Flourished Trim Die.  Additional sparkle was added with some Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  Next on the hop is Amber!!
