June Verve Diva Inspiration Hop!


Welcome to Verve's June Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time again! So climb aboard Desination: Inspiration for a fun trip through Verveland today. In addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, we're debuting our June inspiration challenge as well! Play along for another chance to win!

Our June challenge is Winged Whimsy:


Let your creation soar by featuring wings! Think butterflies, birds, feathers or related sentiments. Celebrate the beauty of flight! Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or fly a solo mission, let's see some winged beauties!

I decided to focus totally on the butterfly for my card.  The colors were inspired by my Vera Bradley Flower Shower Hipster purse!  I've used So Fluttery and stamped my own background paper and overlayed it with a piece of vellum to soften the bright colors.  A little machine stitching attaches the vellum to my panel.  I diecut one butterfly with the matching Fluttery Die and attached it with foam adhesive over my sentiment strip.  The last detail was adding some sequins from the Pastel Sequin Mix from Verve.
