June Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

It's the 5th of the month and time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings!

Our June challenge is Eat Me, Drink Me


Are you fueled by coffee or tea or cocoa? Find cupcakes irresistible? Create a card featuring an edible treat or favored beverage!  Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just leave us needing a fix of your favorite indulgence!

If you have arrived from Maureen's blog, you are right on track. If you just happened upon the hop, you can check the hop list below.

I couldn't find any aqua, striped paper in my stash so I went with my go to pattern - polka dots!  Matched them up with some dark brown to match Verve's signature colours and added a few pops of red for colour.  The stamp set I used is called Coffee along with the co-ordinating Cuppa Joe die set and Coffee Word die.

Challenge deadline: Saturday, June 20.
