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!
You should have arrived here from the talented Sankari!
I'm fortunate enough to work with Julee and come up with the themes for each month's hop...and this month I chose Spring, because winter has been so rough for most people. Of course here in NZ, it's now Autumn and I think I jinxed things, because our lovely summer has gone with a bang, leaving floods and rain behind! So it looks like I need a little spring now too!
I wanted to go with an inspirational, light, pretty card today. I watercoloured the background using reinkers. The gorgeous sentiment is from Words of Wisdom, one of my all time fave sets. The small butterfly is from the soon to be retired (and 50% off!) Twitterpated. I used the All Aflutter Die set to cut it out.
I'm playing along with Inspiration Emporium "splash of color" challenge! I definitely splashed on my watercolors!
I finished the card with mini brads, washi tape, some stitching and Verve sequins. I left the inside blank, I think this one would be good for lots of occasions. I'm linking up to Virginia's watercolouring challenge.
