Fanspiration Diva Dare

This month's Diva Dare is to get inspiration from a card in the Verve gallery made by someone other than one of the Verve Divas.  How fun!  Love seeing the endless variety of styles and ways people use their Verve stamps. 

I worked my way through quite a few pages in the Verve gallery and a few cards with hearts on them caught my eye (I love hearts).  However, this card by my blogging friend Vickie Z, stole my heart (no pun intended LOL).  I just loved the little envelope with the note tucked into it.

I pretty much cased the entire card.  Kept the layout and made my own envelope (that was an interesting experience, let me tell you). The papers are more on the masculine side as this may very well be hubby's Valentine's Day card.  The notebook stamp from Blue Skies provided a great background for the sentiment which I easily created by arranging the individual words and heart image from Verve's new Stronger Love set on to an acrylic block.  Now I just have to make sure the "safe place" I put it in is one which my aging brain will remember...yup...don't ask me why I need to be careful about that LOL ;)  

Thanks for popping in to share a bit of your day with me today.

Fabulous envelope of hearts! Good idea to keep the words positioned on an acrylic block.

Wonderful card. I love all the hearts - those crimped ones are great. Perfect masculine Valentine's Day card.
My new Verve just arrived -- yippee-- now I just have to find the time to start using it;) It probably won't be til next week unfortunately though.
