December Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

Happy Friday and welcome to Verve's December 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 December inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

This month's challenge is entitled O Christmas Tree:



Ribbons and sparkle and merry galore! Create a card inspired by the decorations of the season!

To me, the Christmas tree is the center of the holiday decorations, and I've always loved a simple, sparkly tree. 


I used different tree images from the Holiday Greetings set and Winter Tree Plain Jane to create this card.  I cut the trees from different patterned papers and added lots of Diamond Stickles to give them lots of sparkle.  I really like the different shades of green together.  Have you ever noticed how many different greens there are in pine trees?

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!
