It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!
There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until December 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!
These rustic trees in blues and greens bring images of Old World Christmas to mind. Add in some baubles and finery, or keep it simple and rustic. Either way, it's sure to inspire. There are no rules... follow our color pattern or head off in whatever direction these pretty trees take you. We can't wait to see what you create!
For my card I started with a fun mix of pattern papers that I had in my stash that works with the hues of the inspiration photo. Next, I die cut, stamped, and gold embossed the flowers from Verve's Kindness Matters stamp set and Great Kindness die set. Next, I die cut and stamped the leafy sprigs from Verve's Sunny Day stamp set and Verve's Leafy Sprigs die set.
I die cut the word beautiful from Verve's Beautiful Flowers die set three times. Twice in vintage cream card stock and once in gold foil card stock. I added some wink of stella on all the flowers and leaves. I tried to show you in the above photo the soft pretty shine this adds. I just love the look. I finished my card with some gold sequins from Verve's Holiday Sequin Mix.
Challenge deadline: Monday, December 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!
