Pink Celebration Diva Inspirations Hop

Hi friends!  It's the 5th of the month and time for our monthly Diva Inspirations Hop and Challenge. This month we're celebrating our 8th Anni-VERVE-sary, so our challenge theme is Celebrate!  We hope you'll play along and link up your celebratory cards this month.  There's a prize drawing from all the participants, and there's also a prize for a lucky commenter along today's hop, so be sure to give a shout out to the Divas in the comment box as you hop about.


I'm the first stop along today's hop and I was so inspired by the big rosettes on the wall in the graphic, I took the inspiration photo quite literally!  I pulled out a Tim Holtz rosette die and a couple of scraps of paper and made the pink rosettes, adding a black stitched circle to the center, embossed with one of the medallions from Peaceful Medallions.  I added a few Sprightly Sprigs to each rosette, then embossed the Celebrate sentiment from Moments Remembered in gold on black cardstock.  The card base is splattered with some watered down glue and then dusted with gold embossing powder and heat set.

Our Anni-VERVE-sary also means there's a new sale going on!  Right now all of our in-stock stamps, dies and embellishments are 10 - 50% off.  There's some great deals in each category, so be sure to click on over to the Verve store when you're done with the hop. :)

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Amy Kolling.
