June Diva Inspirations Hop

Welcome to Verve's June Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time again! So climb aboard Desination: Inspiration for a fun trip through Verveland today. In addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, we're debuting our June inspiration challenge as well! Play along for another chance to win! I pulled out lots of Verve dies for this card...


Here are some close-ups of the details:



I popped up the small butterflies from the Die Sidekicks set. I mounted them on a tagged stamp from the same set, and cut out both with the coordinating All Aflutter and Sweet Scallop Tag Die. The sentiment is from the Petals and Wings set and that's stamped on a Flag It die cut. I also added some flowers made with Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix. The border just underneath the sentiment is from Verve as well, this border dies set is called the Scalloped Trim Trio set.

Our June challenge is Winged Whimsy:


Let your creation soar by featuring wings! Think butterflies, birds, feathers or related sentiments. Celebrate the beauty of flight! Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or fly a solo mission, let's see some winged beauties!

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines, and a little bit about our brand new Diva!
