Nature Gives To Every Season ~ Verve Inspiration Hop

naturegivesmaureenplutWelcome to Verve's October Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our October inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

This month's challenge is entitled Fall Fancy:

The air is crisp and the colors are warm – celebrate fall with a spook-tacular creation or a thoughtful thank you using Fall as your inspiration! 

It’s easy to be inspired by fall when you have a whole lotta gorgeous Verve stamps to choose from.  I pulled out the flowers from Be Blessed and the matching Petal Points Die Set to create a few sunflower inspired blooms.  Then I used the Every Season Plain Jane for my sentiment and some gorgeous Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection ribbon to wrap around the whole card.

Need a little more inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
