April Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!!


It's time for Verve's 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 May 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!


A little tropical flair is in the air for inspiration this month. Bright pinks, aquas, golden tones and a touch of white promise easy breezy days ahead. There's no script for this inspiration... go floral, keep it modern, follow our color pattern or forge your own path, just show us your tropical chic inspired creations.

For my card, I used the Simply Amazing set along with the coordinating Simply Daisies Die Set and the Amazing Adjectives Die Set.  I totally took my inspiration from the fabulous colors in the photo!  Those colors make me happy!  Instead of using the flower stamp images, I just used the dies to make "starbursts" of color on the card.  For the gold lettering, I took inspiration from that gold mirror on the wall in the pic.  I also used some gold discs from the Gold Glam Shaker Mix to add more gold to the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you play along!!
