Each month, this Diva Inspiration Team will be kicking off your month with some fabulous inspiration in the form of a Blog Hop! Stop by each of the blogs listed below and you just might find yourself the proud owner of some new Verve-y goodness!! We've hidden a little mystery prize on one of today's hop spots, so be sure to leave a little comment love as you hop around. One lucky commenter on the mystery hop spot will win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store! The deadline for comment entries is Saturday, February 5. If you get lost along the way (or if for some reason my list isn't working right), head on back to the Verve Blog for the Master Hop List.

And now on to my creation for the hop (and for the record, it's REALLY hard to take photos of an ensemble like this!!)...
I was in need of a last-minute birthday gift for a dear friend last week and decided to create a super simple little gift ensemble using Great Friend - with the recurring element on each piece of the gift set being an embossed image on vellum - don't you just love those vellum flowers!?
I used Kraft and Whisper White cardstock along with some retired turquoise polka dot DP from Scenic Route on a little 4x4 notecard, tall covered notepad and covered post-it notes.
I added a silver brad to the center of the embossed vellum flowers for contrast and to sort of ground them (and let's be honest - I needed something to hide the adhesive since they were vellum!). My friend LOVED this little gift and it could easily be reproduced using so many different colors and patterns of DP to totally change up the look. That's what I love about those Great Friends flowers - they are so versatile!
Now that I have my project out of the way, I have a couple more exciting announcements to share. Did you notice a few new names in that hop list up there!? That's right - we've added 3 brand new Divas to the Diva Inspirations Team! I'm so excited to be working with Betty Wright, Dawn Easton and Sony Christoph! . All 3 of these girls are amazingly talented and I can't wait to see what they've created today! Be sure to leave them a little love and a warm welcome today!
