Welcome to Verve's March Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This month we've got a fabulous challenge that's sure to put a string in your step! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize!

Our March challenge is Spring Has Sprung:


It's time to ditch the winter blues! Create a card that sings Spring using inspirational quotes, pretty colors and florals or themes that celebrate new life. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or blaze your own trail, just show us what spring means to you!

When I saw the inspiration photo, I just couldn't get past the butterfly and soft colors.  So my card is my rendition of the photo.  Using my Distress Inks, I created my soft pink background.  I heat embossed some butterflies from Blue Skies with clear embossing powder, sponged Distress Inks over the top, and fussy cut them out.  I used the frame from On Occasion to ground my butterflies and my sentiment (from Hope Blooms).  Love those tiny sequins?  I LOVE them.....they are called Pastel Sequin Mix from Verve!

I am so happy that sequins are making a come back. Every time I see one, I think of my childhood and these little felt ornaments my mom used to make with sequins on them. Total nostalgia.
