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 March challenge is B is for Birthday...

Don't be caught short - make a fabulous birthday card to keep in your stash or give away! Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just show us your birthday creations!


For my card I started with some Heidi Swapp Favorite Things designer paper pad to mimic some of the patterns and colors in the inspiration picture.  I combined Verve's On Occasion and Chevron Love stamp sets along with Verve's On Occasion Frame die and Banner Bundle die set.   I added some loose thread for detailing and finished with some Verve Signature Sequin Mix.  I am playing along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.
