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 May challenge is Let it Bloom!
Florals are always fashionable. Let your creativity bloom 
and use some fabulous florals on your card. Use the inspiration 
graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction – 
just show us some blooms!


 
For my card, I started with Simple Stories DIY Boutique paper pad.  I layered some of the pretty patterns together using some foam mounting tape for added dimension.  I stamped Verve's Beautiful Plain Jane stamp in black ink. Next, I die cut the flowers from Verve's Wings and Petals Cut Above Die Set.  I stamped the flowers with the coordinating image from Verve's Petals and Wings stamp set  using some colors from the designer papers.  I layered the flowers using foam mounting tape for added dimension.  I finished my card with a few of Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix.
