Verve October Inspiration Hop

Welcome to the World Card Making Day edition of Verve's Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. Along today's hop you'll see some fresh new ideas for some beloved older sets, as well as some fantastic pairings of our latest release with existing sets. It's sure to be a treat, and we've got treats to give away, too!

I dug deep this week and found a couple oldie but GREATY (I know, I went to far with that one) stamp sets that haven't seen the light of day in awhile. I used the sweet ornaments and sentiment from Holly Jolly and the bow from O Christmas Tree! I paired it with this weeks Viva la Verve sketch and the inspiration picture! You'll also see the newly released Award Banner Trim die :-)


Here's my card--

I loved working with Sarah's sketch and these gorgeous colors from the inspiration photo!
