Verve's June Inspirations Hop - Winged Whimsy


Welcome to Verve's June Diva Inspirations Hop
It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time again! So climb aboard Desination: Inspiration for a fun trip through Verveland today. In addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, we're debuting our June inspiration challenge as well! Play along for another chance to win!

Our June challenge is Winged Whimsy:


Let your creation soar by featuring wings! Think butterflies, birds, feathers or related sentiments. Celebrate the beauty of flight! Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or fly a solo mission, let's see some winged beauties!

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, and a little bit about our brand new Diva!

I used that darling butterfly image from So Fluttery that was die cut with the Flutterby Die and propped up on a Hearts & Swirls Frame Die encouraging sentiment from Learning to Sail, and flag die cuts from Flag It Die Set!  A few sprinkles of Shine Bright Sequin Mix finishes off this uplifting card for a dear friend!


It's contest week over at Mojo Monday #348 and the colors at ColourQ Challenge #244 worked great with the inspiration today!  I'm linking up to the Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes, too!


I used some fun papers from Carta Bella's Baby Mine collection!  Love the blues and greens with splashes of orange!



Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
