Bermuda Joy

Hi friends!  It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time again!  We're kicking off our July inspiration challenge with a little blog hop down Verve lane.  We've got a comment prize for a lucky commenter as well as a prize for a random challenge participant.  So we hope you'll join in the fun and play along!  I'm the first stop on the hop, so grab a treat and stroll along!  You can find all the prize and challenge details over on the Verve Blog today.


Verve's July Inspiration Challenge
This month's challenge is red, white and you.  I had intended on a clean and simple look with just red white and a neutral, but when I sat down to play along this bermuda bay paper was on my desk and it just looked like too much fun next to the red ribbon I had pulled out to use.  So I made my own background paper using real red and bermuda bay ink and the flowers from Button Best.  I also stamped the two sizes of flowers in red and cut out with the coordinating Petal Points Die Set.  Next I did some random stamping on the bermuda bay paper and used it for one panel and for the Sprightly Sprigs.  The sentiment is from the Kind Words set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay and then I embellished with stardust stickles, Shine Bright Sequins and a bit of ribbon from the Red, White & Beautiful Ribbon Collection.

Alrighty, time to hop on over to Amy's blog to see her beautiful creation!
