Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {April}

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 April challenge is Bunnies & Babies

Spring is a time of birth and renewal - celebrate the season by creating a card for Easter or a bouncing new baby. Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just show us your sprightly spring creations!

I love, LOVE the colors in this inspiration photo. Delish! I am using two different stamp sets for this card - Framed Florals and Making a Statement.


The card base is Smooth White card stock and I cut out the Bluebells and Rounded Scallop Frame dies in Smooth White as well. The flowers are stamped in Factory Green and Blue Raspberry inks and then I colored some accents with Copic markers. I also added a few Shine Bright Sequin Mix around the frame for a little extra sparkle.
