The end of spring always brings a touch of wanderlust.  This collection of bracelets has me wishing for a sun drenched road trip filled with gypsy wonder and delight.

Challenge deadline: Sunday, June 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!





 For my card, I started with some fun pattern papers from American Krafts Everyday paper pack and created a layout that mimics the many layers of the bracelet.  I added stamped sentiments from Verve's Chocolate  and Coffee stamp sets.



 I masked and stamped the words Eat and Drink words onto Verve's Flag It die.





I die cut Verve's Chocolate word die and Coffee word die in gold foil card stock.  I finished my card with some loose threading and gold sequins from Verve's Holiday Sequin Mix


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
