A Day to Remember and a HOP

Hi friends!  Welcome to the July Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! Today the Verve Divas are posting a little Verve inspiration for you!  If you've been hopping along in order you just left Jen Tapler's blog.  If not, no worries, you can jump in right now... just hop on over to the Verve Blog for the full hop list and prize details.  Then continue through the list to comment on each fabulous blog and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!


For my card I pulled out the Sunny Days set and coordinating Leafy Sprigs Die Set to make a little birthday card.  July is birthday month at Verve, with myself and a few of the other Divas celebrating their special days this month, I thought it was a great time to have a sale!  Plus, we need to clear out a little space in the back room for all the new Anni-VERVE-sary inventory that will be arriving next month.  So all Verve stamps are 20% off this month!  Woohoo!  A great chance to stock up on anything you've missed.

Anyhow, back to the card.  The layout is this week's Viva la Verve July Week 1 sketch.  The two fringey flowers are embossed in white onto designer paper then punched out with a circle punch and cut between each petal grouping, then layered together for a fun look.  The leaves and coordinating dies are layered behind and I accented the center with some clear glass glitter and a white flower embellishment.  The sentiment panel uses a little masking from two different sentiments to add the Wishing You in.  Then I randomly stamped the flowers around the edges and matted on a scallop oval.  A little ribbon treatment and a few scored lines and my card was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  It's time to hop on over to the amazing Sankari's blog to see what jaw dropping creation she came up with for today!  Happy hopping!
