Get Your Diva On!

Good morning!  This week I came home to two packages from Verve.  One from my order for this month's release and the second package from Maureen as an early hostess event!  In less than one week, I'll get to meet her in person and she sent me fabulous Verve stamps as a thank you.  I think I doubled my total number of Verve stamps in one week and that equals happiness for me.  So now...onto the challenge for this month.    The Get Your Diva On Challenge challenge is to make a card inspired by some Pretty Purse Pastic.  My first card is inspired by my bank card.  I picked up on the shades of orange and the diamond image using the Verve's Accent Notes set to create a damask type background.  I love that the top of the image is a heart and it fits perfectly with the sentiment for the card.

My second card is inspired by the Target gift card that one of my boys received as a birthday gift. I loved the fun colors so I decided to color the sentiment stamp from Verve's Big Wishes and coordinate it with the colors from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist paper.

  9. Okay, this is so funny...you pulled a "Moe!" I used to submit 2 cards to a lot of the Verve challenges because I was so inspired :) Love both of these and can totally see the inspiration :) That orange just pops!! Wasn't too sure how this challenge was going to be viewed by everyone, but I think it's been interesting :)

    Love the design you created on the first card and you're right - it's perfect for an anniversary card!
