Verve January Diva Inspirations Hop

Welcome to Verve's January Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This year we're spicing up our monthly hops with the addition of a challenge! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize! Woohoo!
Our January challenge is:


The year is shiny and new, so let's add shimmer and shine to our cards.
Think glitter, sequins, rhinestones, pearls, heat embossing - anything with some gloss.


Here's a card I made with some glittery cardstock hearts!



The hearts and sentiment are from my favorite Valentine set, Chevron Love!
I stamped part of the sentiment on a doily, and the other part on a tab I cut out with the Flag It die set.
The black heart was cut out with the Jotted Heart die and the red with the Wavy Hearts die set.





The silver glitter hearts were cut out with the Heart Quartet die set and the red arrow is from a package of MME ephemera.

I did my best to use the January Week 1 Viva la Verve sketch challenge! Make sure to check out our BRAND NEW CHALLENGE BLOG!
