    Verve Diva's Inspiration Hop {February}

    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 February challenge is Vivacious Valentine...
    Nothing says "I love you" like a handmade Valentine in your signature style.
    Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction
      - just make us swoon with a fabulously flirty creation!

    Challenge deadline: Thursday, Feb. 19.
    Prize: $40 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

    I didn't use a single stamp on my card today - GASP! I know, crazy, right? I adore this I Heart U die set. The large letters are bold and fabulous and should do most of the talking, right?


    I cut out the letters in black card stock and then used the Heart Quartet die to cut out the hearts in bright pink and layered them over the letters. I also added a small heart in the corner with a large Pink Sparkle Sequin overlapping the edge. The banners are white vellum card stock, which I overlapped just slightly over a sheet of patterned paper.  Yum!

    The layout is MOJO383, and it's a contest week! Head on over and enter your card before Sunday for another chance to win more Verve goodies!


    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! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
