Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {June}

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, 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 inked up an older set today - Bountiful Backgrounds.  I love these bold sentiments and they really can hold their own as the focus on a card.  I started with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch and some Fabulous 6x6 papers from Simple Stories.  



I stamped the sentiment in brown ink and then popped it up over the rest of the patterned papers.  I added some hemp cord and a brown button as well.

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
2. Amy8. Sarah
3. Anya9. Sony
4. Betty10. Susan
5. Jessica11. Tiffany
