Verve June Diva Inspirations Challenge & Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!

There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! 

First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts for an entry in the first giveaway. 


I couldn't help but ink up these pretty blooms from"Beautiful Things" once again! I LOVE them! And I love the colours in the inspiration photo! SO fresh and fabulous. I pulled out an old embossing folder for my circular background in gray.

I kept my design simple, and was so excited to make a circular shaped card! I have not done something like this in a long time and it was fun! I die cut the scallop circle with my Sizzix die and then the large circle is a Spellbinders die. I stamped the sentiment onto the new Stitched Pennants Die Set.
