Welcome to Verve's August 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 August inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

Our August challenge is Sequined Stunner:


Sequins are the perfect embellishment - sparkly, affordable and with lots of texture. Add some sequins to your project this month to make it a sequined stunner! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not.


For my card I am using Echo Park's Splendid Sunshine designer papers.  I combined Verve's Be Blessed and Better Together stamp sets along with Verve's Petal Point and  Sprightly Sprigs Cut Above Dies. 

Deconstructed Sketch 162 I stamped a double sentiment in night of navy ink.  I added a multicolored layered background from Better Together behind the sentiments using a soft aqua, yellow, and pink ink.  Love how that little bit of color just adds so much.   I die cut, stamped, and white embossed the layered flowers.  I used some foam dimensionals to create more depth with the layered flower.  I tucked in some of the same designer papers using the sprightly sprigs dies.  I decided I liked the pink leaves!   I finished with a border of sequins using Verve's Shine Brightly Sequin Mix.  I also added a few to the center of the flower as well as a few to the top corner of the card.  I am using Deconstructed Sketch 162.
