Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {December}

Welcome to Verve's December Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. We love to get our Verve inky around here. So pull up a chair and take a tour of some fun creations using Verve favorites.  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.


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

I'm using this week's MOJO322 sketch for my card this month and you should hop over and check out the sketch challenge and see how you can win more Verve goodies! 


I made my own background paper using Bountiful Backgrounds and then cut out the Rounded Rectangle Die in kraft card stock and stamped this beautiful sentiment from Brighter Days in Hot Fudge Ink.  The ribbon is Orangesicle from the Summer Sailing Ribbon Collection, which I tied in a simple bow along the side of the sentiment. 

There is so much more to see from the other Verve Divas, so be sure to stop by and see what Sankari has whipped up for you today - she is next on the hop.
