February Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

Hello there!  It's the 5th of the month and time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes.. comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings!

You should have arrived here from Betty's blog.  Next up is Amy!

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!


Isn't it fun to create a little sweet card for someone you love?  For this month's challenge, I used the More Than Love stamp set to create a special Valentine. 




I layered the heart images onto the die cut Occasion Frame, which was stamped with the coordinating frame image from the On Occasion stamp set. 

Won't you join us in welcoming back the Diva Inspiration Hop challenge for 2015 and play along?
