A Great One and a HOP!

Hi friends!  It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to put on their monthly  inspirational little hop using some old{er} favorites from Verve.  I'm the first stop on the hop, so grab yourself a treat and hop along for some inspiration!  There's a comment prize, too, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comments as you hop around to the blogs listed below.  All the prize details can be found over on the Verve blog today.


For my card I pulled out Doodled Occasions to make a fun little birthday card.  I wanted to try my hand at this week's Mojo Monday sketch again, since I went all clean and simple with my first one.  The papers are from the Now & Then collection from Teresa Collins and I stamped the flowers in Cherry Cobbler and Midnight Muse, then colored in with a blender pen.  I added the sentiments on separate layers, and masked off the happy birthday stamp with some scotch tape so I could add another happy in there.  You can never have enough happy, right?  {grin}  The leaves are stamped with the Dream Big set and cut out with the Dreamy Leaves Die Set.  I cut the chevrons from paper in the collection, then gave everything a healthy dose of distressing and stardust stickles.  I finished off with a seam binding bow from the Signature Ribbon Collection, then added some super sparkle-tacular Subtle Spray Glitter Rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  Seriously sparkly!!!


In other news, we've got two brand new ribbon collections releasing and a Summer Sale starting at Verve today!  Check out the summery ribbons I selected, then do a little shopping!  We've got a bunch of sets and dies marked at 30% off and all of our ribbon collections are 10% off this month.

Okay, now it's time to HOP!  Up next is the phenomenally talented Amy Kolling!
