Verve Stamps Inspiration Hop

** Second post of the day.  See below for my Mojo Monday card**

Welcome to Verve's May Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This month we've got a fabulous challenge that's sure to take you on a sentimental journey! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize!

Our April challenge is Font Focus


Fancy fonts are all the rage! Let your inner wordsmith shine and make a gorgeous sentiment (or two or three!) the focus of your card. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or take some poetic license of your own, just flash us some fonts!

If you have come here from Maureen's blog, you are right on track.  If you happened along the Hop, you can check out the Hop List below to get caught up.

Used Diva Jen's Deconstructed Sketch for my card along with MME's Breeze papers.  Just love yellow, black and grey together!  Pulled out one of my favorite sentiment sets, Lean On Me, and So Fluttery for the secondary sentiment on the banner (both which happen to be on sale right now!).  The Rounded Scalloped Frame, Dreamy Leaves and Joyful Blooms dies provided the framework for the card, and a touch of sequins from the Pastel Sequin Mix finished things off.

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!
