Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Welcome to the June Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! The Diva Inspirations team and several special guests from the Release team are here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! 

For my card I am using Verve's Blessings stamp set.  I chose to keep my card today pretty simple.  I used the sketch from the Mojo Monday193.   I used one sheet of Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden designer paper.  I sort of fauxed the look of the different panels in the sketch by stitching where the different panels would go.  I added a nestabilities frame and sponged in the center of the square with some ranger antique linen ink.  I finished with a few pearls, seam binding and bow, and prima sparkle added rose!
