Get Your Diva On
This month's Get Your Diva On contest in the Verve forum is hosted by my BFF, Teresa Kline, and she's got a nice broad challenge for us! It's called Celebrate The Season and we can be inspired by the Christmas tree in the inspiration photo...what goes on it, under it, etc. Make an ornament, make a gift, gift wrapping, gift card holder or a card to send at Christmas. SO many possiblities for this challenge! The big WOW factor is that Julee will pick someone's entry and they will win $100 in Verve! I knew right away I wanted to create a gift bag using PTI's new front and back die. This can be adhered to a plain white or kraft paper bag and is so fun to "dress up"! The poinsettia was die cut from Vintage Cream CS; edges sponged with Soft Suede ink then curled with the roller tip of a petal roller tool. The tree, flourish & holly leaves are new (to me) dies from Sizzix. All DP is from 7 Gypsies avignon paper pad. Thanks for stopping by....it's a cloudy day with rain in the forecast here in VA.
