Verve Stamps Inspirations Hop July 2014

Welcome to Verve's July Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our July inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

Our July challenge is Red, White and YOU!


Red and white are always classic, pair this gorgeous color combo with a color of YOUR choice! Make a statement or keep it muted, it's all up to you! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not, we just want to see you flash a little red, white and "up to you" color on your creation!

If you have come here from Amber'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.

July 1st was Canada Day, as well as our eighteenth wedding anniversary, so I'm still in celebration mode.  Couldn't have asked for a better theme for this month's hop if I tried LOL!   I took my inspiration directly from our Canadian flag: red, white and a maple leaf.  To say I was excited to make this card is an understatement :)  I used Chaitali's Viva la Verve sketch from last month, and included a little sneak peek from a new Verve set due to release next week.  Lots to celebrate indeed!
