Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {May}

Welcome to our Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Inspirations Team to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, which might just come in handy for the new stamps and dies Verve is releasing on Friday, May 10! So be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

If you are following the hop, then you have arrived here from seeing the ever so fabulous, Jessica.

I've been wanting to play along in this week's MOJO291 and I thought Brighter Days would be perfect for this sketch.



I stamped the sentiment in brown ink on Kraft card stock and then layered it over some fishtail flags in 24/Seven 6x6 papers from Simple Stories.

I wrapped some hemp cord around the card base and then added a natural button over the top.


There is much more to see from the other Verve Divas, so be sure to stop by and see beautiful, sunny Sankari - she is next on the hop.

And just in case you missed a Diva, here is the hop list for you so you can catch up:

1. Julee7. Sankari
