Verve Diva Inspirations Hop! Naturally Navy

 (this is my second card today - please click here for my Reverse Confetti sneak peek)

Welcome to Verve's November Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our November inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

This month's challenge is entitled Naturally Navy:

Classic, bold, timeless...navy is naturally elegant! Go nautical or pair with neutrals for a creation sure to impress.


I just loved the clean lines of the inspiration photo - and kept my card similarly clean. The flowers made me think of one of my fave Verve sets ever! I stamped the amazing flower from Great Friend in navy ink on burlap printed paper and fussy cut, popping up each layer with foam tape. I thought the Pennant Trim Banner would be a nice nod to the nautical-ish inspiration and the ribbon ends on the wreath. I finished with a button and twine, and some Verve Shine Bright Sequins.

Need a little inspiration? 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!
