December Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

Well, it's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!  You should have made it here from Maureen's BLOG, but if you've just joined us, there's a link list at the bottom of this post so you don't miss a thing!

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 January 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!

Find a little inspiration from this sweet stocking graphic, make a colorful winter card, or head off in your own direction. There are no rules.. just have fun creating!

Well, I took the inspiration to heart this time and tried to stick with the photo as best as I could.  I don't have any "stocking" stamps from Verve which would have been perfect, so I went with this cute little hanging ornament from the BRIGHT SPIRITS stamp set and used the latest MOJO MONDAY SKETCH 477 that you can find HERE.  I found some sweet papers that fit the color scheme, but that I could still lend to a Christmas themed card.  Finally, to shabby chic it up a bit, I added the rhinestones coming down from the top of the main panel and used my finger to pounce some Stardust Stickles over the papers, snowflake embossing and ornament.  These colors aren't my usual thing for Christmas, but I'm pretty smitten with this very sparkly card!  (Oh, I forgot to share that I used my favorite jingle bell brads that I got at Hobby Lobby last year!)

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