July Diva Inspirations Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Diva Inspirations Blog Hop!  The Verve Divas are here to inspire you with a little Verve! You can start the Hop at the Verve blog.  Continue through and comment on each fabulous blog and leave a little comment love and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!  If you got here from Amber's blog you are in the right place.  Be sure to check out the awesome line up of diva inspiration we have for you this month.

I used Verve's Words of Wisdom set...these stamps are just full of heartfelt, encouraging sentiments. I cut out the design that was already printed on the patterned paper and stamped my sentiment off to the side. I mimicked the flower picture at the bottom with my own combination of a Kaisercraft flower, some black tulle accent spikes and a few flowers cut off of a pick. The ribbon is from PTI and matched the colors on the patterned paper perfectly. I added a bit of antique lace to the bottom and some crystal gems. The sketch is based on this week's Mojo Monday challenge.
