Verve's Diva Inspirations Hop

Welcome to the World Card Making Day edition of Verve's Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. Along today's hop you'll see some fresh new ideas for some beloved older sets, as well as some fantastic pairings of our latest release with existing sets. It's sure to be a treat, and we've got treats to give away, too! I hope that you've come from Christyne's blog...wouldn't want you to miss any beautiful inspiration along the way! Here's a card that I made with an older Verve Christmas set, this one is called Christmas is in the Air:


I masked/stamped the image onto an Oval Nestie cut out, adhered that to a Floral Oval circle and adorned the perimeter with Liquid Pearls. The ribbon is from Verve's Stormy Skies collection, it's roughed up a bit and I also dabbed some of the edges with distress ink.
