June Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

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 Destination: 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!

I have noticed that the butterflies are starting to show up in my garden.  It is so lovely to see them fluttering around.  I used them as inspiration for my card today.


I used flowers from the Sunny Days set, combined with the All Aflutter Plain Jane.  The sentiment and small butterfly are from Blue Skies.  Lots of bright, happy colors on this one!

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.
