Verve Stamps February Diva Inspriations Hop

It's the 5th of the month and that means it is time for Verve's February Diva Inspirations Hop.   This month we've got a bloomin' good challenge for you along with our usual inspiration!  So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation over at the Verve blog for a chance to win another prize! 
  

February is the month of love and flowers are a popular gift
so add some petal power to your cards this month!

If you have come here from Teresa's blog you are right on track.  If you just happened on to the hop, you can start from the top and work your way through (see hop list below).

I loved the bright colours in the inspiration photo and had fun using them on my card.  A breath of spring in the middle of winter indeed :)   Pulled out two of my favorite Verve Flower sets:  Joyful Blooms and Great Friend.   Layered them up for some dimension and then added a sentiment tag.  After making this card I am definitely ready for Spring!

One lucky commenter along the hop will win a prize, so make sure to leave a comment on each of the participating Diva's posts to increase your chances of winning!  You can check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.

A bright, cheerful card. Love the colors. All you an see around here is white - so it's good to remember that someday there will be other colors outside.

Absolutely lovely, Marisa! I'm ready for the blossoms and blooms of spring to arrive - and warmer temperatures! We're at -34C today - sunny and crisp. Very, very crisp! Your card makes me smile!!
