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!
I love flipping through my patterned paper pads looking for the colours in each Diva Inspiration palette. The Julbille pad from MME had the perfect match so that's where I started. Sadly, I needed a sympathy card for a colleague. She loves my cards so I made sure to create one with my favourite elements, doily, layers of pattern, double sentiment, and sequins. I have used this sentiment from Stronger Love for other sympathy cards, I think it is just so beautiful and comforting and a little different from "with sympathy."
