Glam Blessings

Hi friends!  It's time for another Diva Inspirations Hop to kick off Verve's October inspiration challenge.  I'm the first stop on the hop, so grab a treat and get ready for a little glam from the Divas inspired by this month's challenge theme... Black, White & Glam!  There's a blog hop prize and a challenge prize up for grabs, so be sure to read to the bottom for all the deets!


For my card, I went glam with a patch of pumpkins from the Bountiful Harvest set.  I colored with copics, then the leaves in silver and the stems in gold wink of stella pens.  Next I covered the pumpkins with glossy glaze and sprinkled with glitter.  I embossed the sentiment in gold and used a styled silver metal frame to accent it.  A subtle chicken wire embossed background and some broad gold diagonal stripes finishes things off.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I can't wait to hop along and see the bloomin' creations from the other Divas!  I hope you'll play along with us too!  You can find all the challenge details and linkup info on the Verve Blog.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Amy Kolling!
