February Diva Inspirations Hop - Floral Fantasy - Comment to Win!

It's a very busy blog day - please click here and scroll for all three of my cards today!

Welcome to Verve's February Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This month we've got a bloomin' good challenge for you along with our usual inspiration! 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 February challenge is Floral Fantasy:


February is the month of love and flowers are a popular gift
so add some petal power to your cards this month!



I was so inspired by that gorgeous graphic and went colorful with my card today! The focal flower and background stamping uses florals from Surely Goodness. I've colored with copics and added some sheen with a wink of stella pen.

The gold chevrons were created with a stencil, stipple brush and delicata gold glitz ink - it's so pretty in real life!

The banners were cut from glitter cardstock using the Banner Bundle dies.

The sentiment is from a retired set, but you can find a similar one in the Small Phrases set. I've stamped it on the cute little Charming Banner die set.

Here's a peek at the inside...


The sentiment here is from Blue Skies.

Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.
