August Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

Welcome to Verve's August Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Divas to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

I played with the new Mojo Monday sketch and my Take Note and Borderline stamp sets...



I did some faux sewing with the border stamp from Borderline and the rest of the stamps are from Take Note! I tried to do some doodling on the oval sentiment piece, but it was a fail, lol! I should have left well enough alone, but I thought it would turn out better, oh well! I still like the card:)

Your next stop is going to be Andrea's beautiful blog, so hop to it! Thanks for stopping by today:)

I love the faux sewing! It really looks like it's stitched. I've never tried to sew on my cards but I think I need to venture into it after seeing your card.

Amber what a really great card! I love, love, love the colour scheme and the patterned paper is perfect to go with the kraft - love the borderline stamp - that is so cool and going on my buying spree.
