Verve Diva Inspiration Hop - April 2016

It's time for Verve's monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!

There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until May 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!


A little tropical flair is in the air for inspiration this month. Bright pinks, aquas, golden tones and a touch of white promise easy breezy days ahead. There’s no script for this inspiration… go floral, keep it modern, follow our color pattern or forge your own path, just show us your tropical chic inspired creations.

Love this colour combo - so fun to work with :)   Love the colour of the yellow walls and found some great polka dotted paper to match.  I paired them with the flowers from Happy Place and matching Happy Doodles die set.  The butterfly is from Sidekicks Die with matching All Aflutter die set.  Needed a little something something so added a few sequins from the Pink Sparkle Sequin Mix.  Finished it off with ribbon, a bow and a button.

Hi there, Marisa. What a fun and inspiring card. I sure got a lot of great ideas from the Verve DT (including your card) and I had so much fun creating my entry. Thanks for taking part in the hop and for the great inspiration to help us all get going with our creations. It sure helped me, and I really enjoyed myself.
Blessings,
Karen
