August 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 $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 September 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!

Summer brights fade into earthy tones for the dog days of summer. With the hustle and bustle of the end of summer coming, a breezy, free-spirited graphic is what we have in store for you this month. Follow the color pattern, or be inspired to journey where the creative winds may take you. We can't wait to see what you create!

If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  For my card, I used the Better Together set from Verve.  I used the background stamp from the set to create a background that mimicked the inspiration photo.  I alternated the red and green color in the stamping and then added strips of cardstock in varying lengths.  The doily reminded me of the piece in the dreamcatcher.  Finally, I added some sequins from the Signature Sequin Mix to add some sparkle.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've been inspired to play along!  Next on the hop is Christyne!!
