July Get Your Diva On

Happy Saturday, friends!  Today I'm sharing a card for the July Get Your Diva On challenge.  This month Maureen is challenging us to be inspired by a gift card.  Play along for a chance to be a future Guest Diva for Verve!  But you better get cracking, because the deadline is tomorrow night {July 17).  For my inspiration piece I found an adorable gift card featuring my favorite character... Hello Kitty. 


I took my inspiration from the pink and black colors and the polka dots reminded me of this fun Uncommon paper from Authentique.  I wanted a softer shabby look, so chose a dark grey and a coral pink.  The "buttons" down the side are made with the sun image from the New Mercies set and some big pearls.  The big leafy branch is stamped in Blushing Bride, then I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Small Phrases over the top.  I tied a little shabby bow over to the side of the sentiment panel, just like on Hello Kitty.  The butterflies are the Mini Exotic Butterflies from TCP and I finished off with a pearl border to continue my shabby polka dot theme.

Well, that's all for me today.  I hope you'll find a little time this weekend to get creative and play along with this fun challenge!  I may be a little biased, but I do think that being a Verve Guest Diva is a pretty cool gig!  :-)  Have a fantastic day!
