Welcome to Verve's April 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 April challenge is Chic Chevrons:
Chevrons are the new polka-dots! Get groovy and use this popular pattern somewhere on your creation. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or zig-zag off on your own, just show us some chic chevrons!
I had so much fun putting together my card today! I've used chevron paper and that gorgeous chevron butterfly from the Chevron Love stamp set, cut with the All Aflutter Die. The beautiful sentiment is from Bloom & Grow, as is the leaves image, cut with the Elegant Leaves die.
I've also used the Award Banner Trim die, and I stamped it with the polka dot image from the newly released Better Together.
The layout and colors for my card come from the current Viva la Verve challenge!
Here's the inside of my card...
