Hi friends! Happy Friday! It's time for another Viva la Verve! challenge over in our forum and this week, Sarah has a super fun sketch AND/OR inspiration pic for you. The inspiration pic brought out a lot of ideas for me, but I still needed to make a 1st birthday card for my niece, so I decided on aqua and pink from the floral canvases and got to work with the new Birthday Bots and Geared Up sets.
The sweet little robot from Birthday Bots is embossed onto white cardstock and then colored with Copics. I added a little backsplash of gears from Geared Up around her in pink and aqua and then stamped a bunch of gears for a random background on the pool party background. The gear embellishment is a couple of the gears from Geared Up cut with circle punches and matted with a Sprightly Sprockets die, then I stamped and hand trimmed the 1 to top it off.
I laced some thin polka dot ribbon through a section of the Award Banner Trim Die then embellished with Metal Mix Sequins and teeny nail art rhinestones. Super fun and a fun little keepsake for her first birthday!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop in tomorrow for the World Card Making edition of our Diva Inspirations Hop! We'll be giving away the entire September release to one lucky commenter along the hop, so tune in!

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
