November Diva Inspirations Blog Hop


It's 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! You have until December 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our November challenge is Rustic Winter

The days are turning cold and the splendor of fall is changing to the magesticly rustic beauty of a winter woodland. This month we're challenging you to bring a little bit of that rustic winter to your creations. Follow the graphic or head off on your own trail, just show us your rustic winter creations!

I was so excited when I saw the inspiration photo and the word "rustic."  I broke out my Christmas bell box and pulled some rusty bells for the first time this season!  Woohoo!  I made a chalkboard tag inspired by the grey background and stamped it with a sentiment from Peace on Earth .  I used some beautiful gold reindeer paper to keep with the reindeer theme along with a few snowflakes embellished with the Frosted Snowfall Sequin Mix.
