May Diva Inspirations Hop

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!
There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until June 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

The end of spring always brings a touch of wanderlust.  This collection of bracelets has us all wishing for a sun drenched road trip filled with gypsy wonder and delight. There's no script for this inspiration... channel your inner gypsy, go floral, follow our color pattern or forge your own path. We can't wait to see what you create!

I was definitely inspired by the thought of wanderlust and forging a new path (ahh, someday!).  The bracelets seemed exotic to me, so my mojo said "travel" theme, which brought me to grab the TAKE NOTE stamp set and these fun travel papers.  The sentiment was the perfect match for the little globe papers which "sort of" fell into the color scheme on the inspiration photo, and definitely carried the theme I was going for with "you mean the world to me".  I added a touch of gold bling using the GOLDEN GLAM SHAKER MIX sequin confetti.  I also used the latest sketch from the MOJO MONDAY sketch blog.  I love the little arrows I stamped on the gray circles!  We hope you get a chance to play along in our challenges. 

Next up on your hop lineup is TERESA!!!!! Go take a look at what she's sharing today, you know it will be beautiful!!!!
