The end of spring always brings a touch of wanderlust.  This collection of bracelets has me wishing for a sun drenched road trip filled with gypsy wonder and delight.

I dug through my designer papers and found this old Stella and Rose paper by MME which had the perfect mix of colours - score!  The sentiment is from Kind Words, one of my all time favorite Verve sets.  Added a few sequins (a little sneaky peaky of things to come) and another all time favorite, the Flutterby die butterfly.


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're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
