Our February challenge is Vivacious Valentine...

Nothing says "I love you" like a handmade Valentine in your signature style.
Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction
  - just make us swoon with a fabulously flirty creation!

Click here to link up your challenge entries

Challenge deadline: Thursday, Feb. 19.
Prize: $40 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

You should have arrived here from Sankari - you can start back at Julee's blog if you need to start the hop from the beginning!


I used the graphic as inspiration for my card - the flower stems are from Dream Big (plenty of other Verve sets would work for this look as well!) and I made little heart flowers with the Heart Quartet Die. The banners were cut with the Banner Bundle and my favourite Pennant Trim Die. The sentiment is from Stronger Love


I added some stickles and rhinestones to bling up the hearts a little.

It's time to go visit with the always fabulous Susan now!

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!
