January Diva Inspirations Hop


Welcome to our January Diva Inspirations Hop! Today the Divas are dusting off some Verve favorites and putting on our monthly hop to inspire you with a fresh new spin on the stamps in our stash! So grab a drink and hop along as we share a little Verve with you! There's a great little prize involved, too! A random commenter on one of the hops will win a $30 gift certificate to VERVE, so be sure to leave a little love in the comment section as you hop about! You can find out all the prize details over on the Verve Blog today.

For my card today, I used the Heart's Desire set along with a background from Artful Elegance.  I started off using the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday Sketch. I decided to go with a red, white and black Valentine theme.  The sentiment, heart and background were dry embossed.  The ribbon is a new product that is coming to Verve!  :)  It's seam binding and it's gorgeous!  More on that next week! ;)  The edges of the card were die cut with the Flourished Trim Die and then a red flourished trim was adhered to the edges. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've been inspired!  Enjoy the rest of today's hop!!
