August Diva Inspirations Hop

Welcome to Verve's August Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Divas to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog. For today's card, I pulled out Verve's inspiring So Fluttery set and pairing it with some Maja papers, this is what I've done with it:


The color theme is courtesy of Maja Design's Sofiero collection. A little roughing up of some edges contrasted with the delicateness of the crystals and flowers provides the perfect balance of shabby and chic.  I stamped the 'amazing' greeting on paper cut out with Verve's 'Flag It Die set' from the A Cut Above die series.

My design is based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch, here:

  33. You know the saying "last but not least" definitely describes the work that you put into your card. You may be the last one on this blog but your card is a piece of artwork. Love the shabby chic look but yet it is so soft looking as well. The flowers and crystals really tie the card together.
