Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


It's the 5th of the month and 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!

Our April challenge is Bunnies & Babies


Spring is a time of birth and renewal - celebrate the season by creating a card for Easter or a bouncing new baby. Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just show us your sprightly spring creations!

A colleague at work is expecting a baby this month...and she chose to NOT know the gender...I love that!  So this card is in case it's a girl, but I'll need to make a boy version soon just in case!  This Smallest Things Plain Jane is the perfect sentiment for baby cards :)  I was inspired by the colours in the photo above and that gorgeous ribbon on the teddy bear!  The embossed hearts echo the heartfelt sentiment and the dear little tag with "sweet baby girl" from Small Phrases finishes off the well wishes.

Challenge deadline: Sunday, Apr. 19.
Prize: $40 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

Cynthia Daugherty said...

love the Winnie the Pooh quote

Miriam Prantner said...

I love this sweet quote! Wonderful papers and love that embossed background too!

jennifer delauter said...

I love your take on the card!! Honestly, until you stated about the big bow on the teddy bear, I never noticed it. I'm glad you saw that and put a big bow on your card!! I like the pink rose/marbled paper on top. It wouldn't be too hard to make this into a boy's card. You would need to bring out the green in the dots more
(I guess you could color the white dots blue.) For a baby girl card, this is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Julie S. said...

This card is adorable! Being the mom of two very wonderful boys, I do always appreciate the "girly" things in life!

loulou said...

Lovely card. That sentiment is so beautiful.

Jennifer {jennifer-g} said...

Wonderful sentiment, I love the classic feel of this pretty card!
